This silver coin is a beautiful physical representation of ancient Chinese philosophical principles. The phoenix, an immortal bird whose rare appearance is believed to foreshadow harmony, and the powerful dragon, a divine symbol of strength, wealth and good fortune, represent balance and harmony in feng shui.
Yin Yang Design
Considered perfect matches for each other in their ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ interdependence, the phoenix and dragon are depicted encircling a bagua, a motif incorporating Taoist trigrams, or symbols comprising three lines. Each trigram represents one of eight fundamental elements or concepts. Within these is the yin yang symbol denoting universal balance. The design includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
In keeping with its ancient themes, the rimless coin has been ‘antiqued’ by hand to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an aged artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin in the limited mintage may vary.
Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
Each coin is housed in a classic display case and themed shipper is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
