Product Details

Mintage of only 8,000 coins!
The reverse of this Silver coin depicts a colored traditional Chinese dragon holding a pearl. In Chinese mythology, the Dragon is often shown carrying a pearl to represent its great wisdom, hence the term "Pearls of Wisdom". The image is backed by an engraved Chinese symbol for "Dragon". The weight of 1/2 oz and fineness of .999 Silver is also displayed.

The obverse displays the Raphael Maklouf profile of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II as well as the date of 2012 and Niue, Two Dollars. This Silver coin comes to you in a realistic protective dragon’s egg tucked carefully in a green dragon scale box along with a numbered certificate of authenticity!

This is a very neat collector’s coin that will not last long with such a low mintage. As your exclusive distributor in North America for this unique Silver lunar coin, APMEX has secured a small fraction of the total mintage of these popularly themed coins, so lock in your share before they are gone!

Very Satisfied with this product

By  Daniel R

I bought this product, for the reason of it being 1 of the 8,000 that are currently being minted, because later down the road I plan on selling it....This product was extremely perfect in every format , Very Satisfied with this product !

Neat gift idea

By  B W

Another dragon themed item I bought for my son. The silver is gorgeous and has really nice detail. The egg case is plastic and just feels cheaply made. I would have given 5 stars if not for that.

Nice little coin

Very interesting take on the Chinese dragon, almost peacock like in color.

I purchased this item for my daughter in-law. She loves dragons and has a varied collection of dragon items, but nothing like this. A very beautiful coin, and I really like the egg case. I know she will be excited to own this. Thank you APMEX

The coin alone is beautiful and the packaging shows the care and quality of the mint. Ironically, the packaging was ideal for Easter since it comes in an Egg Case. I gave it as a gift and the recipient was delighted. I highly recommend Apmex for quality purchases. I am a repeat customer and will purchase again.

Beautiful Proof coin along with unique and beautiful packaging in egg case. I had planned on giving it as a gift, but I am keeping for myself :) I have purchased from Apmex for several years now and I am always satisfied.


from NJ


This is a well design coin and the packaging is what sell this product, the only thing is that the premium for a half oz. silver is very high.
