We’ve produced one of our Coin Series Profiles to this very ambitious range of dragon coins, with the idea being we’d cover every second or third new release in a news post, with the rest going straight into the profile. This fifth release was one due to go straight to the CSP, but it’s deviated away from the prior style enough to warrant a bit of extra attention.
For those who’ve missed our coverage of the four earlier issues, this is an Asian dragon themed series of nine designs, with each available in a silver, gilded, antiqued, or obsidian-black finish. Each variant has a mintage of just 50 pieces, so just 200 pieces in total for each release. They’re superb coins, packed with high-relief, but this fifth issue has eschewed the similar obverse for a fully coloured one. It’s quite a striking change, but sure to divide opinion. We’ll have to see where the series goes from here.
As always, the coins look beautifully done, are well presented, and exhibit a good range of finishes. These coiled dragon coins should be available to order now. Check out the profile for more information on the range to date.
By MK “Embedded in Chinese mythology, the 蟠龙, or Coiled Dragon, represents a majestic and benevolent force. Unlike other dragon variations, the Coiled Dragon is renowned for its poised and contemplative demeanour, coiled as if in deep meditation. This particular symbolism is deeply ingrained in Chinese culture, signifying power, wisdom, and longevity. “
