Description

This 2017 $25 fine silver ultra high relief dragon coin provides unparalleled dimension and depth, so that the dragonÕs carefully sculptured head appears to rise up from the coinÕs flat surface and the turbulent waves. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is limited to just 6,000. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Simon Ng offers an artistic tribute to Dragon Boat Festival through the skillful fusion of ancient symbolism, traditional art elements and modern minting techniques. The lower portion of the coin is dominated by foam-tipped wavesÑan auspicious pattern that also adds a sense of motion to the design. In fact, curved lines are present throughout this water-themed design, including the dragonÕs mane that evokes the sensation of wind and movement. Engraved in ultra-high relief for added depth and dimension, the serpentine spirit emerges from the water in a way that mimics the shape of a dragon boat, with its neck curved like a boatÕs gunwale. The dragonÕs features are resplendent in colourful hues of red, gold, green and blue, culminating in the blue pearl held tight in its jaw as a symbol of wisdom, and the active yang aspect of qiÑthe life force that surrounds us. The reverse includes the engraved year Ò2017Ó, the word ÒCANADAÓ and the face value, Ò25 DOLLARSÓ. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
