The Four Symbols of Chinese myth and cosmology, also called the Four Supernatural Spirits and the Four Auspicious Beasts, are based on constellations that are seen as the guardians of the four cardinal directions and represent a variety of elements and emotions, seasons, and auspicious virtues. Two of the best-known across the globe are the Azure Dragon and the Vermilion Bird, guardians of the East and South. Known in the West simply as the Dragon and the Phoenix, they are seen as representing the complementary duality of Yang and Yin whose union, among other things, blesses marriage.
The 2023 Republic of Chad Silver Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix Set presents an ultra high-relief engraving in two parts on shaped coins that ship in a presentation case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. These sets are minted with the innovative Bi-Metal Reverse technique: each gilded coin contains a base layer of one ounce of pure silver and a top layer of copper, giving these collectibles a highly substantial feel.
The obverse sides of the coins feature Chad’s coat of arms. These are accompanied by the inscriptions “REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD,” “5000 FRANCS CFA,” and “2023.”
The coins’ reverse sides feature detailed, high-relief engravings of a sinuous Dragon and a Phoenix in dazzling mid-flight with its wings and talons outstretched.
