Product Details
Coiling and floating across the sky, Shenlong is the revered lóng (“dragon”) of Chinese mythology that governs the elements upon which agriculture depends: wind, rain, clouds and, when angered, tempests.

The benevolent rainmaker and master of storms is typically the color of the blue sky so it often goes unseen, but on this affordable 99.99% pure gold coin, Shenlong strikes a commanding pose that leaves little doubt of its mastery over weather conditions that result in abundance and prosperity.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1/20 oz of .9999 fine gold.
  • Mintage of 8,888.
  • Your gold coin is presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell and packaged in a red graphic beauty box, evoking the Chinese New Year "red envelope" tradition of bestowing a wish for luck and good fortune.
  • Obverse: The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
  • Reverse: The coin’s reverse was designed by Simon Ng and features a depiction of the Chinese spirit dragon Shenlong, the benevolent bringer of rains and master of storms. Moving forward across the sky, the dragon’s snake-like body curls away into the distance, as Shenlong brings forth the elements of weather. The dragon’s talons rest on billowing clouds, and with cheeks puffed, Shenlong breathes out a swirling wind; that movement of air is also conveyed by the curling whiskers, eyebrows and horns.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
