The dragon is one of the most revered creatures in Chinese culture. A symbol of wealth, power and luck, it has long been associated with the imperial family, nobility and Chinese classical arts.
Dragons are traditionally depicted in pursuit of a fiery orb known as a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment which is often portrayed amid swirling clouds or mist. Dragons are frequently illustrated with their eyes glistening and mouth open in anticipation.
The coin’s reverse portrays a Chinese dragon chasing a flaming pearl among stylised clouds.
The coin is presented in a contemporary latex case which displays both sides of the coin and is accompanied by an illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
