New Silver Coin from The Perth Mint Celebrates Two Revered Creatures
The dragon and the tiger have, separately, been revered as iconic creatures for thousands of years. Now, The Perth Mint has released a beautiful Chinese-themed Silver coin honoring both.
In Chinese culture, the dragon is known as a divine mythical creature, embodying wealth and good fortune. The tiger is likewise considered lucky and has become a symbol of bravery. In fact, feng shui, an ancient Chinese philosophy focusing on natural balance and interdependence, considers these two animals as perfect matches, with the tiger as the “yin” energy and the dragon as the “yang” energy.
This 2018 1 oz Silver Dragon & Tiger coin from The Perth Mint showcases a powerful design of a dragon and a tiger in perfect harmony encircling a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom. Stylized clouds can be seen in the background. The mint has announced a limited mintage of 50,000 coins, much lower than most Silver bullion coins around the world.
This .9999 fine Silver coin is the second in an exciting series from The Perth Mint. The first release featured the dragon and phoenix, two of the most well-known mythical creatures in history in a similarly powerful, yet balanced, design.
The exceptional design and low mintage mean this Silver coin is sure to be popular with both collectors and investors. Order this new release today at APMEX and add to, or start, collecting this series now.
