2021 2 oz Republique du Tchad The "Hatched" Series - Velociraptor Antiqued High Relief Silver Coin
The Velociraptor is a relatively small dinosaur as compared to others of its species. It grows up to a height of two and a half feet, closing up to an average person’s waist. The Velociraptor is believed to have been a swift and agile hunter of small herbivores, who mainly hunted by using its sharp sense of smell and sickle-shaped claws to pierce and pin down their prey.
The head of the baby Velociraptor dinosaur emerges from the shell while its body stays curled within the egg. Its eyes are crafted in sharp detail, an expression of cautious aggression showing through. The body of the baby dinosaur remains curled up comfortably, with delicate indentations on the shell of the egg to signify the hatching process. The obverse features the legal tender, the Coat of Arms du Tchad.
This piece is crafted with 2 oz of 999 pure silver and die-cut with fine precision to deliver its engraved details in a super-high relief, before being topped off with antiqued silver finishing.
