Silver Kilo (1 kg), Coin Type from Chad (issued 2017 - )
Coin TypeSilver Kilo (1 kg)

The Republic of Chad uses the Central African CFA Franc as its currency; it is the common currency of six independent states in central Africa: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. The CFA Franc has both common and national issues. All common circulating coins are issued under the authority of CEMAC ("Communauté Économique et Monétaire de l'Afrique Centrale" - Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa) and have no issuing country. Separately, each member country can strike coins bearing its national symbols; these coins are legal tender in the other members of the bloc too.

Chad has authorised some foreign mints to strike coins under its issuing authority for collector's purposes, or as bullion. These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including in the very large one kilogram of silver format.
