Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Canada’s dragon boat festivals are the continuation of a tradition that originated 2,000 years ago in China, where the dragon is the mythical ruler of water and rain. Engraved in ultra high relief, the colourful Chinese dragon rises up from the coin to celebrate the cultural aspect of dragon boat racing and the spirit of its participants, who paddle to the sounds of the drum that is the boat’s beating heart.

The reverse image by Simon Ng is a colourful, dynamic fusion of traditional symbolism and contemporary minting techniques. An auspicious pattern of stylized, foam-tipped waves fills much of the field, where the engraved lines convey movement in the water. Engraved in ultra high relief, a Chinese dragon rises up from the flat surface of the coin, where the serpentine neck alludes to the typical shape of a boat. An application of colour adds dazzling reds, oranges and blues to this revered figure of Chinese mythology, who holds a green pearl of wisdom that symbolizes the active yang aspect of qi, the life force that surrounds us.

A dazzling showpiece that celebrates the cultural tradition of dragon boat racing, and the festivals held annually in several Canadian cities.
