This breathtaking 2 Oz Silver coin is the fifth release in the “Mythical Creatures” series, dedicated to some of the most fascinating creatures. In this edition – the Green Dragon. The coin has an incredible High Relief thanks to the Smartminting technology (Colored and Polish)
A dragon is a legendary creature, typically scaled or fire-spewing and with serpentine, reptilian or avian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures around world. The two most well-known cultural traditions of dragon are the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Balkans and Western Asian mythologies. Most are depicted as reptilian creatures with animal-level intelligence, and are uniquely six-limbed (four legs and a separate set of wings) and the Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan (namely the Japanese dragon), Korea and other East Asian and South Asian countries. Most are depicted as serpentine creatures with above-average intelligence, and are quadrupeds (four legs and wingless). The two traditions may have evolved separately, but have influenced each other to a certain extent, particularly with the cross-cultural contact of recent centuries.
The reverse of the coin depicts an incredible detailed and coloured high relief image of a Green Dragon flying. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “DRAGON” – the name of the coin. On the left, the inscription: “2019” – the year of issue. On the right, the logo of the series. The obverse of the coin depicts the Coat of Arms of Palau and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIC OF PALAU” – the issuing country and “10$” – the face value.
