2017 Australia $1 1-oz Silver Dragon & Phoenix High Relief Proof
Sold Out at the Mint, China’s Time-Honored Symbol of Harmony
Within the Chinese culture, two symbolic beasts rise above all others: the dragon and the phoenix. Seen as two parts of a whole, these celestial creatures have united in a symbol of harmony that dates back centuries. The dragon, a symbol of power and good fortune, was frequently used as a symbol for the Chinese emperor. The phoenix, on the other hand, represents beauty and luck – ideas associated with the empress. Together, the dragon and phoenix are symbolic of yin and yang, circling each other in an endless collaborative quest for the flaming pearl of enlightenment and wisdom.
Now, fully realized by the master artisans at Australia’s world-renowned Perth Mint, these two creatures have soared to new heights on a series of exquisite coins!
