Silver Dragon coins, also sometimes known as Dragon dollars, were Silver coins issued by China, Japan and later Korea for general circulation in their own countries.

A dragon was featured on the obverse of the Japanese and Korean issues while on the dragon was featured on the reverse of Chinese issues. These dragon dollars were all originally inspired by the Silver Spanish dollar which following its introduction into the region in the 16th Century had set the standard for a de facto common currency for trade in the Far East, this specification being a weight of 27.22 grams and a fineness of .900; the coin thus contained 24.5 g (0.7876 troy oz) of Silver.

Chinese coins of this type are known Kwangtung dollars from the old Romanization of the name of the mint that they were first produced in China, more popularly they are known in Chinese as, "Dragon Silver" or "Dragon Money", capable of being read as both Silver or money.

Little known fact; The first Chinese Silver Panda coins were of the traditional specification of 27grams in weight, 0.900 fineness, which were modeled after the Dragon Dollars.

ONLY 5K WORLWIDE! One of my best and favorite purchases

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

The only reason a perfect 5 wasn’t given was because when ever possible I purchase enough coins to get the full page, or sheet or sealed tube from the mint for a more collectors feel. Well I got a sheet of ten and the rest in separate loose and sealed. I did get them once on sale and got a real good price over spot comapired to the afternoon on the same day and even now sold out... so I’m happy I got as many as I did (31ct)but still didn’t get them the way I wanted. APMEX offered to replace them but I don’t see that happening since only 5K minted and sold out already. Over all super happy and the coins are one of the highlights of my modest collection.

Can't ever beat a Dragon

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Very beautiful and interesting coin. And the super low mintage made it a no brainer to me. I bought 4 of these and should have bought more. As usual, Apmex came through with exceptional pricing, service, and quick delivery. Thanks Apmex !

The Dregon Restrike

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

This coin is the best Dragon I have seen. Only 5k, meaning 1,000’s of collectors that want one, simply will not get one. And you can’t have mine. Wish I could afford a Monster Box. I got 2, both would pass for a 70 rateing in any House. All most forgot, it’s the first coin in a series of 8. Can’t wait to see the next 7!!!!??

Better than expected

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

So shiny, it could literally double as a mirror. Worth every penny and then some. Comes in a capsule, which is also wrapped in more protective plastic.

Exceptional Coin with a Rich History

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

The stock photos do not do this coin justice. It comes sealed in an OGP capsule and plastic (much like commemorative pandas). The finish is proof-like which really adds eye appeal. An inexpensive way to collect such an iconic coin from China’s imperial past. Can’t wait to see what the other 7 designs in the series look like
