The field behind is blank to provide utmost contrast to help the detailed patterns stand out. The elephant is surrounded by inscriptions that detail the metal type, weight and purity as well as the face value of 5,000 CFA Francs.
On the reverse, you’ll find the national coat of arms of the Republic of Chad. This symbolic image includes a lion and goat working together to hold up a shield. The shield contains only wavy lines, which are symbolic of Lake Chad — an important natural resource for the nation. A medal associated with the National Order of Chad is also included, along with a scroll that contains the words Unity, Work, Progress in French.
Your coin arrives in a protective plastic slab with the appropriate PCGS labels. The PCGS gives this coin a grade of MS70, which means it’s a flawless Mint Strike that was not circulated. The coin is also considered a first strike (or early strike).
