The divine dragon is one of the most potent symbols of wealth, power and good fortune in Chinese culture. Highly significant, the number eight is associated with luck and riches. This coin references both in a stunning design imbued with significant meaning.
Celebrating the Chinese dragon, this stunning release combines colour and antiquing, two popular Perth Mint numismatic treatments that enhance the design with dramatic effect.
The reverse portrays a sinuous Chinese dragon curled into the shape of the number eight. Pictured in pursuit of a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment, it is dramatically rendered in gold and red on the antiqued surface of the coin.
With a limited mintage, the coin is housed in a classic display case within a brightly illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
