Rich in symbolism, new Dragon and Phoenix coins offer rare collectable opportunities

Two of the most potent animal symbols in Chinese mythology appear in stunning high relief on these new gold and silver proof coins from The Perth Mint.

Seen as wise and benevolent, the Oriental dragon represents nobility and good fortune in a culture where people believed their Emperor to have been the son of a dragon.

Another ancient symbol of good fortune, the Phoenix is considered to be an immortal bird whose rare appearance foreshadowed harmony at the ascent to the throne of a new Emperor.

In Feng Shui, the dragon and phoenix are said to be perfect matches for one another. The phoenix is ‘yin’ while the dragon is ‘yang’ according to the Chinese philosophical account of natural balance and interdependence. Their portrayal together is also recognised as a symbol of everlasting love.

This design includes a third significant Chinese symbol – a flaming pearl. Viewed as a metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and spiritual essence, it is also said to rid a person of their troubles, bringing career success, as well as fortune and good health.

Abundant in Chinese symbolism, both these releases will be rare. Just 5,000 coins struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, and a minuscule 500 coins made from 2oz of 99.99% pure gold, will be released.

Available in Australia exclusively from The Perth Mint. For information on how to acquire these coins outside Australia, please contact Hong Kong based LPM.
