It is considered a unique masterpiece in honor of the mythical Chinese dragon, the most revered animal in ancient oriental culture. Coined impeccably with 10 ounces of pure gold, the impressive handmade coin is crowned by a three-dimensional portrait of the highly symbolic animal.

Its serpentine body and sinuous limbs are adorned with 117 pink diamonds from Argyle Pink Diamonds , meticulously crafted representing scales, of which 81 symbolize "yang" or "man", and 36 represent "yin", or "feminine energy ."

Far from being random, these numbers are closely related to the number "nine," an auspicious figure traditionally associated with the noble Chinese emperor. Each is a multiple of nine, while the sum of the digits of each number adds up to nine.

The argyle pink diamonds are among the rarest gems Earth and seductive natural colors . Coveted for its exquisite beauty and provenance, they are so extraordinarily rare that no more than a handful are discovered each year at the argyle diamond mine, in the rugged wilderness of Kimberley, in northwestern Australia.

In addition to the dazzling dragon aura, his eye is represented by a rich green emerald of the 1,000-year-old Muzo mine, located deep in the Colombian Andes.

The dragon's mouth is open and the eyes blink before capturing the flaming pearl , a traditional metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and spiritual essence, partially hidden by fog and spiral clouds. The sublime dragon rises lushly above the waves over which the creature is believed to have dominion.

The water is represented in the design because it was believed that dragons controlled the rain , which is reflected in the fact that the popular dragon dances performed during festivities Chinese New Year originated as a way to invoke more rain for farmers.

The effigy depicted on the obverse is the work of Jody Clark, showing Queen Elizabeth II , the year of 2019, the weight and purity along with the monetary denomination.

The gold that contains the coin, between the collection and investment , has a fine of 9999 thousandths, in 10 troy ounces (323,566 grams of weight), diameter of 60.60 millimeters and thickness of 16 millimeters.
