According to the Chinese legend of the Carp and the Dragon Gate, schools of carp in the Yellow River would swim against the current and attempt to leap over the Dragon Gate. Reaching the top of the waterfall was a seemingly impossible feat for all but the most determined fish. The carp that triumphed over extreme adversity and made the leap was rewarded for its perseverance: it was transformed into a mighty golden dragon, and that awe-inspiring moment is beautifully depicted on this half-kilogram 99.99% pure silver coin.
Bravery, determination, persistence and good fortune — all these virtues are represented on this selectively gold-plated coin, which wishes you success in your leap forward this year.
Inspired by the Chinese legend of The Carp and the Dragon Gate, the selectively gold-plated reverse design by Canadian artist Simon Ng represents the dramatic moment when the carp has overcome adversity and is transformed into a dragon. Triumphant, the golden dragon-headed fish is the image of strength as it rises up from the tumbling waters and spray of the waterfall obstacle. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
