Description

A Royal Canadian Mint first, these amazing yin and yang-shaped silver coins featuring two heroes of Chinese traditionÑthe Tiger and the DragonÑfit together to form a perfect whole. The theme of balance is fully realized in their stunning imagery and singular design.

This engraved and selectively-coloured pair of coins is designed to fit together to form a single circle. Shaped in the traditional Chinese yin form, the first coin features the image of the Tiger, the word ÒCANADA,Ó and the date Ò2018.Ó The Tiger is stylized to mimic Chinese paper-cut folk art. Selective colour brings vibrancy to the design. The Tiger is surrounded by 11 engraved cherry blossoms. The upper portion of the reverse features an intricate engraved border that is completed on the other coin, forming a full decorative outer circle when the two coins are fitted together. The second coin is shaped in the traditional yang form. Its reverse features the face value of Ò10 DOLLARSÓ along with a stylized yellow-gold Dragon. The Dragon, like the Tiger, is designed in the style of paper-cut folk art and is adorned with vivid red motifs and a bright green ridge along its back. Nine engraved cherry blossoms surround it. The unique obverses of both coins feature the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt along with a branch of engraved cherry blossoms.


Amazing yin and yang-shaped coins fit together to form a full circle! We have never before launched coins in this unique shape and composition.
