In this piece from the Perth Mint series on "Chinese Myths and Legends," we have a tribute to Asian mysticism. Due to Australia's location, Asian culture is popular enough there to have its own stake, similar to how Americans adopt some culture from their southern neighbor, Mexico. Australia and China have a frequent amount of tourist cross-traffic.
The dragon and the tiger are significant in Chinese and general Asian culture as dual representatives of the Yin/Yang symbol. In martial arts, this symbolism was referenced in the 2000 film "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," which became an international turn-of-the-century hit. Deeper roots may be found in a famous pair of Confucius temples in Taiwan, the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas in Zuoying District. You can find more dragon and tiger references throughout east Asian culture, from cartoons to cuisine.
This beautifully rendered and detailed coin has a mintage of 50K, making it decently available and affordable for collectors of all budgets. As the duo circle each other warily, the dazzling sphere between them represents the Pearl of Wisdom, another artifact of Chinese folklore. The obverse depicts the standard IRB portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Owning this attractive piece of pure silver is a must-have commemorative specimen for discerning precious metal collectors!
