The mythical creatures of Dragon and Phoenix need little introduction. As the two most powerful celestial animals in Chinese Feng Shui, they represent the ‘Yang’ and ‘Yin’ energy respectively, and are often paired together to achieve a perfect balance that is said to invite matrimonial bliss.
The Dragon has long been perceived as a symbol of royalty, life and power, while the Phoenix is the queen of all birds and the embodiment of beauty, luck and prosperity. When matched together, the Dragon and Phoenix symbolise absolute love, harmony and togetherness, bringing conjugal happiness and marital bliss to lovers and couples.
To reflect the perfect pairing of the Dragon and Phoenix, this piece is a combination of two individual pieces that shine on their own yet merges together seamlessly to complete an elevated work of art. The individual, teardrop shaped pieces of the Dragon and Phoenix are cut with extreme precision and accuracy in accordance to their Yang and Yin symbols, and the swirls flush together smoothly to form a single, unified circle - truly befitting to its meaning of an eternal bond.
Each of the 2 coins are struck in a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Reverse”, which combines 2oz of silver as the base layer together with a top layer of 5.75oz of copper. This results in a super ultra-high relief that is matched with an antiqued silver finishing after. This technique allows the coin to have an incredible weight and feel in the hand together with its size.
The coin comes together with a specially designed certificate of authenticity where its serial number will continue to run from the previous series enclosed in a carefully thought-out thematic packaging box, designed and filled with details.
