In China’s rich mythological history, the Phoenix is a sacred bird believed to carry good omens. While it is known simply as the Chinese Phoenix in the West, in its native land this bird is traditionally called Fenghuang. Feng suggests its male elements, while Huang imparts more female characteristics. However today, the Phoenix is seen as exclusively female in order to balance out with the traditionally male Chinese dragon. Stories purport that this bird originated in the sun, and that it’s made of celestial bodies. These otherworldly characteristics make it a beloved and even sacred creature in China.
The Republic of Chad coat of arms is featured on the obverse side of 2022 10 oz Antique Republic of Chad Forbidden Phoenix Coins. This includes its official motto Unite, Travail, Progress. You’ll also find the words Republique Du Tchad, 2022, and 10000 Francs CFA inscribed around it. This is complemented by an elaborate design featuring various phoenixes in tandem along the edges.
