In traditional Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine creature and

potent symbol of power, strength, wealth and good fortune. It is often portrayed

chasing a luminous or flaming pearl which is a metaphor for wisdom and

enlightenment. The glistening gem is traditionally illustrated swirling through

mist to represent the elusive nature of these qualities.

The dragons are traditionally shown with their mouths open and their eyes

wide, as they endeavour to capture the eternal treasure.

DESIGN

The coin’s reverse depicts two exquisitely detailed dragons chasing a flaming

pearl with a stylised representation of clouds and mist in the background.

The mythical creatures encircle an image of the bagua, a motif incorporating

Taoist trigrams, or symbols comprising three lines. Each trigram represents one

of eight fundamental elements or concepts: heaven/sky, lake, fire, thunder,

wind, water, mountain or earth. Within these is the yin yang symbol denoting

universal balance.

In keeping with its ancient themes, the coin has been ‘antiqued’ by hand to give

it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an aged artefact. As a

result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin in the limited mintage may

vary.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen

Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date, and the monetary denomination.

No more than 888 of the 2019 Double Dragon 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin will be

released.

This number is considered extremely lucky as the Chinese word for ‘eight’

sounds similar to 发 which means good fortune or money.

Each coin is housed in a classic display case within an illustrated shipper and

accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
