2022 Ao Qin - Vermillion Dragon 2oz Silver Coin

Presiding over the South China Sea is Ao Qin (敖钦), also known as the Vermillion Dragon. Ruler of the season of Spring and master of the Fire element, Ao Qin is able to command lightning and fire.

The majestic creature is thus depicted diving deep in a sea of red, an allegory of his stature and powers. Above him, the waves crash and roll while he glides through the vermillion shade effortlessly. Of the four in the Dragon King series, Ao Qin is the only piece whereby his head is depicted on the enamel portion of the coin.

As a result, details on his long body are clear and distinct — textured scales on the top surfacing beautifully while contrasted with a smooth underside. Straight long horns coupled with the wavy tendrils planted on the dragon’s head make his strong and dignified form stand out underneath the enamel.

Through the use of a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Reverse”, it achieves a remarkable weight and 80mm diameter size - making it double the size of a regular 2oz collectable. By combining 2oz of silver as a base with a top layer of 11.5oz of copper, the result is a super ultra-high relief that brings out every detail to maximum effect, then finished with antiqued silver.

  • Design features Ao Qin (敖钦), also known as the Vermillion Dragon
  • Struck from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver using a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Reverse”
