The African Lion Silver Coin is by far one of the more unique options available for those investors buying silver. The coin program was introduced in 2015 by Sunshine Minting and is a rare coin in that it has been issued by various different countries within Central Africa. The latest coin has a new design for its second issue for the Republic of Chad.

The African Lion Silver Coins debuted from Sunshine Minting in 2015 with Burundi featured as the issuing nation. The coins had a design in the first year of a male lion accompanied by a lioness lying in the fields with a tree in the background. The two subsequent releases in 2016 and 2017 featured new designs and new nations of issue.
2016 African Lion Silver Coins were issued for the Republic of Congo and depicted a male lion accompanied by a lioness on the prowl on the savanna. The 2017 was the first coin issued by the Republic of Chad and depicted only a lioness crouched and stalking her prey through tall grass. The 2018 coin is the first time the series has been issued by the same nation for the second time.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Republic of Chad Lion Silver Coin is the image of a male lion. The massive mane around his neck dominates much of the design field, with his face stoic as he surveys the lands around his pride looking for challengers and predators.
The obverse of 2018 1 oz Republic of Chad Lion Coins includes the same design featured on all coins in the series. The map of the African continent is featured and each year the nation of issue is highlighted within the map. The other nations of Africa are not visible by national boundaries, but the Republic of Chad is visible as a mirrored section within the otherwise matte appearance of the continental map.
