In Chinese mythology, the dragon is a divine creature and an auspicious symbol of power, strength, wealth, and good fortune. Throughout East Asia and beyond, koi are synonymous with harmony and happiness, and are also said to be lucky omens for marriage and fertility.
Ultra high relief
Struck with a deeply engraved die on an extra-thick blank, the coin’s symbolic design is portrayed in ultra high relief. Comprising a dragon and koi eyeing a flame-ringed pearl, an ancient embodiment of wisdom, it includes a ‘moon bridge’ – its high arch and reflection on the water creating the shape of the lunar body often associated with purity or perfection. Also in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign. Also on the obverse is the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination, and year-date.
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is housed in a presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper.
