Description

The outstanding Asian-style dragon wrapped around the column is very three-dimensional. A Chinese lantern border circumnavigates most of the coin and the background is filled with clouds and waves of a style similar to that of the Japanese artist, Hokusai, famous for his work “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”. The whole thing is very stylish.

A debut issue in a brand new series of Dragon coins. Where better to start than with the culture that reveres these mythical beasts more than any other – China.

The format of choice for the coin is a real favourite in the mythology genre. Two ounces of fine silver make up a rimless, ultra-high relief strike with an antique finish, An insert, in this case formed of coral, symbolises the Sun. The design is a very striking one. There looks to be an impressive level of relief and we know from our experience of previous Mint of Poland coin renders, that the finished article is well able to match the quality indicated by them. If you see detail on these renders, chances are you will see them equally clearly on the actual coin.

The obverse face continues the Mint of Poland’s trend of taking the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, as required by the issuing state Niue Island, and making it part of a larger custom design. For this dragon coin, a wide border area features a high-relief background pattern, upon which are placed five dragon silhouettes, each in two styles. This would suggest a series of five coins featuring differing types of dragon from around the world.
