CoinGold Ounce 2021 Mandala Wildlife - Warthog

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, such as the internationally popular one troy ounce of gold format, such as this coin.

This design is the seventh release in the Mandala Wildlife series, and features the Warthog.

The Mandala Wildlife series features 1 oz Gold and 1 oz Silver coins with unique designs of different animals, each with a beautiful mandala print. These coins have limited mintages, along with a changing design per release, adding to their collectibility.

The warthog gets their name from the thick protective pads on their head that look like "warts". These pads on both sides of the head are to protect their face when they fight. Warthogs sleep in burrows that they steal from other animals, they do not dig their own holes. Warthogs have a life span of 15 to 18 years in the wild. Their tusks are used to fight or to defend themselves from predators. They are also used to dig for bulbs, tubers, and roots during the dry season. These interesting animals roam the continent of Africa, making it a perfect addition to the Republic of Chad Mandala Wildlife series.
