Why add this 2017 1 oz. Antiqued Silver Dragon and Pearl coin to your collection?
The dragon is a divine mythical creature in Chinese culture, often depicted with a flaming pearl, a representation of spiritual energy, power and immortality. Issued by Tuvalu, this antiqued coin struck by the Perth Mint from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver combines the two symbols, featuring an innovative rotating replica pearl charm at its center. Having a hand-applied antiqued finish, each of the 3,000 Dragon and Pearl coins minted will be unique in appearance.
Magnificently Detailed Antiqued Design with Central Pearl Charm
Two dragons are featured on the reverse, dramatically circling the pearl charm at the center. The image by Perth Mint designer Ing Ing Jong includes the inscriptions "1 OZ. 9999 SILVER" and the Perth Mint's mark "P."
Ian Rank-Broadley's sculpted image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is positioned above the pearl charm on the obverse. The pearl is framed by a beaded border, which is surrounded by the inscriptions "1 DOLLAR," "TUVALU 2017" and "QUEEN ELIZABETH II."
Stunning GEM Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Coin
The 2017 Tuvalu 1 oz. Antiqued Silver Dragon and Pearl coin with a rotating charm includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The ungraded Brilliant Uncirculated (GEM BU) coin is presented in the original Perth Mint packaging: a black Mint branded clamshell case with an outer box embellished with a dragon themed design.
