Silver Dragon coins, also known as Dragon Dollars, were Silver coins issued by China, Japan and later Korea for general circulation. A serpentine dragon was featured on the obverse of the Japanese and Korean issues, and was featured on the reverse of Chinese issues. It was originally inspired by the Silver Spanish dollar, which had set the standard for a de facto common currency for trade in the Far East following its introduction into the region in the 16th century. Specifications of these coins had 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 Origin
Coins that were produced in China of this type are known Kwangtung dollars from the old Romanization of the name of the mint where they were first produced. More popularly they are known in Chinese as "Dragon Silver" or "Dragon Money," capable of being read as both Silver and/or money.

Little Known Fact
The first Chinese Silver Panda coins were of the traditional specification of 27 grams in weight and 0.900 fineness, modeled after the Dragon Dollars.
