Fly away with the Golden Heavenly Dragon, who safeguards every place you call home.

In Chinese mythology, Tianlong is the Heavenly Dragon—the divine long (dragon) of the skies and the guardian of celestial palaces. This 99.99% pure gold coin features an impressive amount of intricately engraved details that inspire awe for the powerful protector. The golden dragon’s very likeness is thought to attract abundance, good fortune and prosperity, and for extra luck in 2023, this coin shows Tianlong curled up in the shape of another auspicious symbol: the lucky number “8”.

Small in size but big on details—this Golden Heavenly Dragon coin will enchant and lift your spirits in 2023.


  • The tradition continues. A revered cultural symbol, the dragon is the most powerful creature in Chinese mythology—it’s also one of the most popular themes among collectors. This coin continues the tradition of showcasing art motifs, symbols and legends that are a cherished part of Chinese-Canadian culture.
  • Affordable. Struck on a 1/20 oz. gold blank, this limited collectible is one of the Royal Canadian Mint's most affordable gold offerings in 2023. It may be small in size (14.1 mm) but it’s big on finely engraved details—a testament to the Royal Canadian Mint's dedication to expert craftsmanship!
  • Rare and in high demand. Previous dragon coins all sold out quickly, and only 8,888 pure gold Heavenly Dragon coins are available worldwide.
  • Includes serialized certificate. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.


The Royal Canadian Mint's 2023 Dragon coins feature the Heavenly Dragon, who guards the celestial palaces of the gods. Its likeness appears on the reverse of this precious keepsake crafted in 99.99% pure gold, which is the traditional colour of prosperity and good fortune.


In Chinese culture, “8” is considered the luckiest number. To attract good luck and fortune, the auspicious number has been incorporated into the mintage (8,888) and the coin’s reverse, where the dragon’s coiled body forms a shape resembling a figure eight.


Each golden Heavenly Dragon coin comes packaged in a red beauty box—red to attract good luck in 2023.


  • A golden dragon is traditionally a symbol of strength, power and wealth, and on the coin’s reverse, Tianlong is depicted with a pearl—a popular Chinese motif since ancient times. Pearls continue to be associated with wisdom and wealth, spiritual energy (often in connection with the moon) and enlightenment.


Designed by Simon Ng, the coin’s reverse is inspired by Chinese mythology and features a depiction of Tianlong, the benevolent Heavenly Dragon and the protector of celestial dwellings. Already a symbol of abundance, good fortune and prosperity, the celestial dragon is depicted curled up into the shape of the lucky number “8”, as it chases a flaming pearl across the sky. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.

"The goal was to create a very defined yet visually striking silhouette of the Heavenly Dragon on this 14 mm coin. The lovely twists and curves of the number “8” create a recognizable and meaningful shape that was perfect for incorporation into the creature's body. The celestial aspect of the dragon was subtly conveyed in the mane and tail, which consist of circular motifs often found in traditional Chinese illustrations of clouds." SIMON NG, Artist


Each 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.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1998.
