Case and certificate
A science fiction scene of an alien invasion of Earth on a coin made from 2 Oz fine silver.
The reverse side of the new coin has an alien with green eyes standing above the bustle of a modern city, with several flying saucers launching attacks on the city. The sky is covered with thick smoke, gathering like black fog to accentuate the magnitude of the destruction and power used by the aliens. The image shows science fiction narratives of the alien invasion of Earth to wipe out human life and destroy planet Earth.
The obverse displays Chad's coat of arms within a triangular structure above which there is an alien control centre. "REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD" is written on top of the control centre. The obverse also shows the face value, year of emission and the quality and weight of the coin's metal.
The new coin is made from 999 pure silver with an antique finish by a private American mint. Maximum mintage of 500 coins.
The alien invasion of the earth is a popular plot in science fiction stories and films. It has grown in popularity since science fiction emerged as a genre. Alien invasion stories portray aliens who come to invade Earth for purposes ranging from exterminating human life or enslaving it under an intense state to completely destroying the planet.
Prospects for alien invasion tend to change according to the current state. For example, alien invasion was a common metaphor in US science fiction during the Cold War, reflecting fears of foreign occupation and nuclear destruction of the American people by the then Soviet Union.
