5 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2023 – 25000 Francs CFA
A mythical creature that embodies power, strength, and fortune, the Chinese dragon is one of the four celestial animals in Feng Shui and is highly regarded for bearing “Sheng Chi”, or “celestial breath.” The breath of the dragon is the most desired energy in Feng Shui as its presence is believed to attract wealth, luck, and success. The formidable creature was also used exclusively by the Emperor in ancient China, reflecting nobility and excellence to the highest degree.
This is a classic design that merges many traditional elements of Chinese dragon design. The scaly, lithe, and twisty bodies of the dragons meld together as they dance through the piece. The sense of mythical movement and grace that is so closely linked with the Chinese dragon is evident in every line of this piece. The dragons are thought to be good luck and three is better than one! This piece offers a high-relief version of the classic Chinese dragon and viewers of the piece will be able to see every fine detail and every scale with ease.
A new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Plus” was applied to give this piece an impressive size and weight. At 120mm in diameter, it is more than double the size of a regular 5 oz collectible, made possible by combining 32.15 oz of copper embodied within two layers of 999 Fine silver totaling 5 oz, to deliver a super ultra-high relief, available in fully gilded in Gold proof or antiqued Silver finishing. This is a limited edition of 199 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
