Direct Coins is excited to offer this 1oz silver proof coin featuring the Chinese dragon in a unique rectangular format.
Depicted as serpentine-shaped creatures with piercing eyes, horns, whiskers, scales and sharp claws, mythological dragons have been part of Chinese culture for thousands of years. Despite their fearsome appearance, they are revered as benevolent creatures with divine origins.
Said to offer humanity guidance and protection, they symbolised the emperor’s sacred power and are still regarded as powerful omens of good fortune.
The coin’s reverse depicts a striking image of a Chinese dragon with a tightly curled body. Included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2021 year-date, the weight and fineness and the monetary denomination.
The coin is presented in a contemporary latex case and is accompanied by an illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
