Animal symbolism

In traditional Chinese culture, the serpent-like dragon is revered as a divine creature and potent symbol of power, wealth and good fortune. With a pattern on its forehead resembling the Chinese character for ‘king’, the tiger represents courage and leadership, while it’s also considered to be the enemy of evil spirits.

Yin and Yang design

The coin’s coloured artistry employs twin dragon and tiger motifs. The four creatures surround the ancient Yin and Yang symbol, or taijitu, comprising a circle divided into black and white tear-shaped halves. The design also includes symbolic clouds and peony flowers.

Memorial Obverse

The coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy supplemented with the dates of her reign, as well as the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and 2023 year-date.

Presentation packaging

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is housed in a stylish presentation case.
