Why purchase this $2 Niue 2018 1 oz. Silver Double Dragon Pearl of Wisdom?
Struck from .999 fine silver at the New Zealand Mint, this 2018 1 oz. $2 Niue Double Dragon Pearl of Wisdom is perfect for collectors who love coins with Chinese cultural themes. It is the first ever Double Dragon bullion coin released by A-Mark. What remains unclear is whether this will be a one-off or the start of a new series.
Striking Double Dragon Design
Like other issues from Niue, this coin features Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Rim inscriptions encircling her image include her name, "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS," and "2018."
A flaming pearl is at the center of the reverse. A pair of dragons flank the pearl, which has long symbolized wisdom. Unlike dragons in Western culture, those in the East are viewed as good creatures, representing strength, power, and enlightenment. The weight and purity of the coin are inscribed at the bottom, and, as with the obverse, a reverse scalloped frame adorns the rim.
Nearly Perfect MS69 FR with Dragon Label
This coin earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) second highest grade, Mint State 69, which means that its very few minuscule imperfections are invisible to the naked eye. NGC provided this grade, as well as their First Releases certification, on a Dragon Label.
