Description

Join the excitement and take in the pageantry of the Dragon Boat festival with this $25 fine silver coin.  Engraved in ultra high relief with a stunning array of vibrant colour, the Chinese dragon rises up from the coin to celebrate the cultural aspect of dragon boat racing and the spirit of its participants.  The coin continues and pays tribute to a tradition that dates back to China more than 2,000 years ago, celebrating the dragon as the mythical ruler of water and rain. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is limited to just 6,000. HST/GST exempt.



The Design:

The reverse image by Simon Ng is a colourful, dynamic fusion of traditional symbolism and contemporary minting techniques. An auspicious pattern of stylized, foam-tipped waves fills much of the field, where the engraved lines convey movement in the water. Engraved in ultra high relief, a Chinese dragon rises up from the flat surface of the coin, where the serpentine neck alludes to the typical shape of a boat. An application of colour adds dazzling reds, oranges and blues to this revered figure of Chinese mythology, who holds a green pearl of wisdom that symbolizes the active yang aspect of qi, the life force that surrounds us.
