Add a Time-Honored Symbol of Harmony to Your Collection

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! When the coins were first released in 2017, the Dragon & Phoenix Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) version was so popular it sold out at the Mint. It’s the same story for the 2018 Proof version which has also been announced as being sold out. Undaunted, our connections in the coin world have uncovered a supply just for you!

This is your chance to get a 2018 Silver Dragon & Phoenix One-Ounce Silver Proof graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be in perfect Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition. In addition, NGC has also certified your proof as a First Releases (FR) coin, a designation that means your coin was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of the coin’s release. Collectors seek out these coins because they are produced with new dies and considered to have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are struck later.

Each is beautifully minted in highly pure 99.99% silver and sonically sealed in an acrylic coin holder with a black display core and an exclusive Dragon & Phoenix label. Your Proof will also be accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.

The Perth Mint has set a strict maximum worldwide edition limited for the 2018 Dragon & Phoenix One-Ounce Silver Proof at just 2,500 coins. Reserve yours now and add some enlightenment to your collection!
