RECTANGULAR COIN

This 1oz silver proof coin features the Chinese dragon in a unique rectangular format. Depicted as serpentine-shaped creatures with piercing eyes, horns, whiskers, scales and sharp claws, mythological dragons have been part of Chinese culture for thousands of years.

Said to offer humanity guidance and protection, they symbolised the emperor’s sacred power and are still regarded as powerful omens of good fortune.
