- A new rectangular-shaped pure silver coin featuring a serpentine form of the mythical Chinese dragon
- 1 oz of pure silver Gold Gilded Rectangle Coin-Bar
- Limited Mintage of 100 coins worldwide
Revered as the embodiment of the Chinese emperor and embraced as a personal talisman, the Chinese dragons have several animal-like shapes such as turtles, and Fish, with the most common depiction of the mythical creatures resembling a snake with four legs.
Unlike Western Culture, where dragons are depicted as flying fire-breathing destructive creatures, dragons in China are traditionally considered as a symbol of power, strength and good luck. They symbolize auspicious powers and control over water, rainfall or floods.
The coin’s reverse depicts a serpentine form of a dragon in a unique rectangular-shaped coin chasing a flaming pearl, which is believed in Chinese culture to have the supernatural ability to grant people their deepest desires.
The obverse features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Jody Clark. It also shows the denomination, issue year, weight and fineness of the coin.
This coin is no longer legal tender because it is an adapted/altered version of an original “legal tender”, enhanced by a private Mint, which is not related in any way to The Royal Mint.
