Designed by graphic designer Albert Ng, the gold earth dragon coin’s reverse is inspired by ancient Chinese mythology and features Dilong, the Earth Dragon. This traditional protector of waterways stands dignified and proud, with features that imply valour and strength; its sharp claws grip a yin-yang symbol that represents unity, balance and harmony. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
"The Earth Dragon brings charm and balance into life, and this is represented by the yin-yang symbol it holds. Notice how the two halves intertwine across a spiral-like curve that splits the whole; that curvy line signifies that there are no absolute separations between the two halves, while the two dots connote coexistence, balance and the unity of opposites that form a harmonious whole.” Albert Ng, Artist
DID YOU KNOW?
- If you look closely, you’ll notice this dragon is covered in scales. This feature implies strength and valour, but it also alludes to the vegetation that grows along the edges of waterways.
The gold coin is presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell and packaged in a red graphic beauty box, evoking the Chinese New Year "red envelope" tradition of bestowing a wish for luck and good fortune.
