1 oz Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2023 – 5000 Francs CFA
Chinese dragons are already associated with good luck and this piece shows the Western symbol of good fortune combined with the image of a celestial dragon. The legend of the four-leaf clover and its good luck date back to the 1600s and it is an Irish tale originally. In western culture, the four-leaf clover is a talisman for good fortune for the person who holds it, but this luck is delivered by fate alone. In Chinese culture, luck is the result of wisdom, proper behavior, and a connection with the spiritual life that lies just beneath the mundane. The combination of these two ideas, the Western concept of luck without any control, and the Eastern conception of luck that you make yourself is very effective. The message that you make your own luck is clear throughout the design of this piece and the tiny and effective details make this piece truly unique.
This piece is made in the dimensions of 45x45mm, with 1 oz of 999 Fine Silver, finished in both antiqued Silver and Gold gilded finishing. Details are sculpted in high relief and it is shaped to finish of the highest precision. This is a limited edition of 688 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
