Four days ago I featured the 2017 Silver Dragon & Phoenix, as the first one for my Silver Dragon Coins article series.The dragon is the most important cultural and mythological symbol of China. It is also a favorite design of many coin collectors and precious metals stackers like myself.
I have long been attracted to anything dragon (and thus collected them in different forms, including in Beanie Baby), even before I started stacking. WHY? I was born on the Lunar Calendar Year of the FIRE DRAGON, the strongest and fiercest Dragon in mythical land!
Today, I will show a second silver dragon coin.
The dragon is the most significant beast in the cultural history of China. It is revered as a mythical being that embodies power, wealth, and good fortune. Those in Chinese society who are believed to possess good fortune are often associated with the dragon, while emperors have longed used the dragon as a symbol of their own power and wealth.
In Chinese culture, the tiger also plays a significant role. The tiger is viewed as a lucky animal as well and has been held in high regard for centuries. A symbol of power and bravery, the tiger's common stripe pattern on its head reflects a design similar to that of a crown.
Although these two beasts appear to circle one another on the2018 1 oz Australian Dragon and Tiger Silver Coin as foes, they are actually a good pairing.
