2020 10 oz Australia Dragon & Tiger .9999 Silver BU Coin
Following on from the popular 2019 10oz Silver Dragon & Phoenix release, the Dragon & Tiger design is featured on this all new 2020 dated coin in the same 10oz format.
In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature embodying power, wealth and good fortune. Dragons are frequently depicted in pursuit of the flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment, which is often represented swirling through mist, smoke, and shadows. Like the dragon, the tiger is considered a lucky animal and has been held in awe for centuries. The pattern on the forehead of a tiger is very similar to the Chinese character for “king” hence it has become a symbol of bravery and power.
In feng shui, the dragon and the tiger are considered perfect matches for one another. According to the traditional Chinese philosophical account of natural balance and interdependence, the tiger is ‘yin’, or female energy, and the dragon is ‘yang’ (male).
Struck by The Perth Mint from 10oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
