The reverse of all Republic of Chad coins in this listing include the coat of arms for Chad, which features a central triangular-shaped shield with a sunburst crown atop it. There is a lion to the right and goat to the left, with a ribbon underneath bearing the national motto of “Unite, Travail, Progres.” This phrase is French for “Unity, Work, Progress.”
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Silver Republic of Chad Deathstalker Scorpion Coin is the image of the feared arachnid. Deathstalkers are true to their name, hiding in dark crevices to await their passing prey. When prey gets within reach, the pincers of the scorpion capture and hold the victim in place while its barbed tail injects paralyzing venom.
