CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Mandala Wildlife - Antelope

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 silver format, such as this coin.

This design is the sixth release in the Mandala Wildlife series, and features the Antelope.

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 antelope is a symbol for action, awareness, and grace. The animals are known for their stunning horns, often reaching lengths of 1.2 metres or more, and their impressive abilities in navigating sprawling grasslands while avoiding predators. There are more than 90 species of antelope roaming the continent of Africa, making it a perfect addition to the Republic of Chad Mandala Wildlife series.

Details

Packaged in RF-welded plastic polymer case (2 1/2" x 3 1/4"), protecting the coin's finish, with included authentication card.

Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all products delivered by the Mint during the first 30 days of their issuance to go through the MintDirect process as MintDirect Premier. APMEX individually seals each MintDirect coin to ensure the authenticity and condition after the coins are removed directly from the mint boxes. Each coin is placed in a protective, non-reactive plastic polymer authentication card to protect the coin’s finish. This process seals the coin within the card, creating a tamper-evident package.
