Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Dragons have been a part of Asian culture for thousands of years. Unlike the fire-breathing villains of the West, Asian dragons are friendly and benevolent creatures that play a key role in celebrations, particularly Chinese New Year. The Spring Festival (Chun-jie) is a critical time of rebirth that signals the upcoming planting season and can always benefit from the dragon’s wisdom, longevity and life-giving rain.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Harvey Chan features a traditional Chinese dragon, its long, serpentine body disappearing far into the distance. The dragon’s undulating form conveys the dynamic energy of its dance as numerous people with poles move its body above their heads. Above the dragon, tiny bursts add a festive tone to the image. The dragon’s face is reminiscent of a horse, but it also has a beard, whiskers, fangs, horns, fish scales and is holding the “pearl of wisdom” is its mouth.

Only 20,000 coins worldwide—a unique gift and collectible to share with Chinese friends and family, people who enjoy exploring exotic cultures, and dragon-lovers of all kinds!
