Exquisite Dragon & Phoenix Design by Ing Ing Jong
The obverse bears a design that has featured on Australian coinage since the 1990s, Ian Rank-Broadley's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Rank-Broadley shows the monarch with a tiara atop her head. she is encircled by a rim frame that is filled with inscriptions, as the entire reverse is dedicated to its design. "QUEEN ELIZABETH II" is inscribed at the top, while the other inscriptions run from to the left of her name to the right of it. Together, they read, "2 OZ 9999 SILVER 2019 TUVALU 2 DOLLARS."
Perth Mint designer Ing Ing Jong created the reverse image. A phoenix, which represents harmony, and a dragon, which stands for strength, wealth and good fortune, represent yin and yang as they flank a bagua. The bagua incorporates eight trigrams, or symbols that consists of three lines, which represent the eight fundamental elements. Within them is a symbol of balance, the famous yin yang.
