Details

The Australian Perth Mint has released a new rectangular-shaped pure silver coin featuring a serpentine form of the mythical Chinese dragon, which has been revered in Chinese culture for millennia as a potent symbol of auspicious powers.

Revered as the embodiment of the Chinese emperor and embraced as a personal talisman, the Chinese dragons have several animal-like shapes such as turtles, and Fish, with the most common depiction of the mythical creatures resembling a snake with four legs.

Unlike Western Culture, where dragons are depicted as flying fire-breathing destructive creatures, dragons in China are traditionally considered as a symbol of power, strength and good luck. They symbolize auspicious powers and control over water, rainfall or floods.

The coin’s reverse depicts a serpentine form of a dragon in a unique rectangular-shaped coin chasing a flaming pearl, which is believed in Chinese culture to have the supernatural ability to grant people their deepest desires.
