In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature, a
symbol of power, strength, wealth, and good fortune and it is often portrayed
chasing a luminous or flaming pearl.
The flaming pearl is viewed as a metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and
spiritual essence. It is also said to rid a person of their troubles, bringing career
success as well as fortune and good health.
From an artistic perspective, dragons are frequently depicted in pursuit of the
flaming pearl, which is represented as swirling through mist, smoke and
shadows. The dragons are traditionally shown with their mouths open and their
eyes wide, as they endeavour to catch the prized treasure.
The reverse of the coin features a dragon chasing a flaming pearl inscribed
with the Chinese character for ‘dragon’.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen
Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
No more than 500 of the Dragon 2018 5oz Silver Antique Coin will be released.
Each coin is housed in a classic display case within an illustrated shipper and
accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
