Product Description


2 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2022 – 10000 Francs CFA

The Discobolus of Myron is a classic Greek sculpture from the classical period of 460-450 BC. The sculpture shows a young man throwing a discus and is thought to be one of the best renderings of this sport from this period. This statue has long been revered as a fine example of the way in which sculpture can communicate motion and tension. The lines of the athlete’s body seem to communicate a feeling that the sculpture is just about to come to life and finish the action he has begun. This is one of the features of Greek statuary, and this sense of movement and tension is a key factor that is looked for when authenticating these pieces.

The sculpture is perfectly recreated by this model and the detail is exquisite. The quality minting and precision make sure that the sculpture is just as beautiful as the original and collectors will love the quality and perfection of the finished product. Collectors might not be able to own the original sculpture for their private collection, but this beautiful rendering offers all of the same beauty and movement as the original pieces.

This piece is crafted with 2 oz of 999 Fine Silver and shaped with fine precision to deliver its engraved details in high relief, before being topped off with antiqued silver finishing. This is a limited edition of 500 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
