TUV 2020 $1 1-OZ SILVER CHINESE NEW YEAR PROOF

Welcome the New Year With A Festive Chinese Dragon Coin

Unlike the Western Dragon that’s notorious for kidnapping maidens and destroying fields of crops, the Chinese Dragon is revered as a wise and kind being. Quite the opposite of his European counterpart, the Chinese Dragon makes crops thrive and is regarded as a symbol of good fortune, greatness and wisdom. That’s why when the New Year is celebrated in China, people stage grand Dragon Parades filled with colorful dragons operated by synchronized teams that curve though streets lined by throngs of happy revelers.

Now that festive scene is recreated in dazzling full color and razor-sharp detail on this 2020-dated Silver Chinese New Year coin. Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% silver by Australia’s world-renowned Perth Mint, the coin depicts a dragon in full color illuminated by a string of lanterns. To represent the dragon’s symbolism as a bearer of good fortune, this big, puppy dog-eyed fellow is shown cavorting over a pile of ancient Chinese coins. To the left of the dragon are four Chinese characters that together provide the bearer of the coin with a wish for prosperity.

The design is made even more beautiful and exciting thanks to the artisans at the Perth Mint, where each coin was expertly crafted as a gorgeous proof from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields.

Each coin in this offer is $1 legal tender in Tuvalu, an independent South Pacific Ocean island nation within the British Commonwealth and comes beautifully displayed in a latex display case with a black frame and accompanied by an illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity issued by the mint.

Just 5,500 of these vibrant proof coins will be released meaning there are few and far between for everyone who would like to own one or give as a thoughtful gift. Make sure you’re in front of the line and reserve yours today!
