Dragon and ‘Pearl’ on Latest Tuvalu Coins by Perth Mint

25 Oct 2017  Wed

The dragon is considered as a divine mythical creature in Chinese culture, symbolizing power, strength, wealth and good fortune. It is generally depicted near a luminous pearl. Both the Dragon and the pearl are featured together on a new collector coin issued for Tuvalu by the Perth Mint.

The reverse of the .9999 fine silver dollar features two dragons around a rotating “pearl” charm. The charm is not a genuine pearl though. The antique finish on the coin creates surface abrasions of an ancient artifact. The process is applied on each con separately making every coin unique. The coin’s obverse features a common effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, 2017, and denomination.

The mintage limit of the 31.107 grams coin is 3,000 pieces and it can be purchased for $117.27 Australian dollars. Each coin comes in a classic display box in a themed shipper along with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
