The 2018 1 oz Dragon and Tiger silver coin is the second in the series of the varied coin mintage from the world-famous Perth Mint, Australia. Most coins have just one central character, for example, the Somalian Elephant, Lunar Dog, Panda and so on, this series, however, has been designed to be different with two central characters based on the ancient Yin and Yang principles.
The first coin in this series was Dragon and Pheonix (2017) which was a best-seller and the Dragon and Tiger silver coin is expected to be equally popular. The Dragon is the basis of the series and is expected to feature in each new release as it is shown with a range of allies and opponents.
Unlike the previous coin featuring Phoenix, which has a mutually harmonious relationship with the dragon, this coin features the tiger, which competes with the dragon for supremacy.
All of these creatures are indivisibly linked in Chinese culture and history and pay out a never-ending battle, their quest for the omnipresent flaming pearl is beautifully shown on the reverse of the 2018 silver 1 oz Dragon and Tiger coin.
The positioning of the animals denotes the tiger’s Yin, endurance and strength that is associated with the earth, and the dragon’s Yang, a heavenly force of energy and power. Each creature has been methodically apprehended by the Perth Mint’s artists and captured for infinity on fine .9999 silver.
The obverse of this outstanding silver coin features the Sir Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
