Celebrate the Chinese New Year with this silver proof coin featuring a dragon with a depiction of the flaming pearl.

Chinese New Year is one of the most important celebrations for Chinese people across the globe. It is a time for families to reunite, as well as honour deities and ancestors.

As powerful icons of good fortune, oriental dragons play an integral role in Chinese New Year celebrations.

Coin details
The reverse of the coin features a dragon with a depiction of the flaming pearl. Dragons are often portrayed pursuing this metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment in fine art, and the imagery is recreated in the popular Chinese New Year dragon dances. These colourful and energetic performances, traditional representations of welcoming good fortune into a community, often include a performer holding a rod with a coloured sphere representing the pearl which is ‘chased’ by the dragon.

Presentation
The coin is housed in a clear latex display case with a black frame, packaged within a beautifully illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
