Chad, officially the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked country in north-central Africa. It is bordered by Libya to the north, Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon and Nigeria to the southwest, and Niger to the west.
The United Nations' Human Development Index ranks Chad as the seventh poorest country in the world, with 80% of the population living below the poverty line. Over 80% of Chad's population relies on subsistence farming and livestock raising for its livelihood. Since 2003, crude oil has become the country's primary source of export earnings, superseding the traditional cotton industry.
Chad's currency is the CFA franc. The CFA franc was introduced to the French colonies in Equatorial Africa in 1945, replacing the French Equatorial African franc. Today we are looking at a 1000 Francs banknote issued in 2000.
The obverse has the map of the Central African States, coffee bean harvesting scene and a portrait of a man to right. The reverse has a Tree logging scene and a stylised wooden mask.
