2023 3 oz Chad Mechanical Creature .999 Silver Antique High Relief Coin


  • The presence of large amounts of liquid water makes our planet unique. Most other planets have very little water, and on those that do, the water exists only as perpetually frozen ice or as vapour in the atmosphere. The earth, on the other hand, is very much a water planet. The ocean covers most of the globe and plays a crucial role in regulating our climate and atmosphere. Without water, life itself would be impossible. Beneath the ocean and seas, a whole other world also exists, filled with exotic creatures we have learned so much and so little about.

    Our oceans, coasts, and estuaries are home to diverse living things. These organisms take many forms, from the tiniest single-celled plankton to the largest animal on Earth, the blue whale. Understanding the life cycles, habits, habitats, and inter-relationships of marine life contributes to our understanding of the planet as a whole. From deep, cavernous trenches to shallow intertidal zones, life thrives in all parts of the ocean. Animals and plants of all shapes, sizes, and species make their home in this watery world, with some habitats, like kelp forests, supporting up to 1,000 different species alone. Many of these organisms are important to the survival of ocean ecosystems and to humans.

    For the obverse field of the 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Silver Mechanical Creature Coin, you will find a visually stunning masterpiece like no other. It is a mechanical depiction of a sea horse looking off into the distance in a mechanical underwater world filled with spinning machines and silver corners. The background is covered in a deep shade of blue with a pool of fish swimming in the distance.

    For the reverse field of the 2023 3 oz Antique Silver Mechanical Creature Coin, you will find the coat of arms of the Republic of Chad plastered on the shell of a mechanical turtle that swims in a blue ocean.
