2023 Canada $50 Heavenly Dragon Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

A benevolent figure in Chinese mythology, Tianlong is the Heavenly Dragon—the divine long (dragon) of the skies—who guards the celestial dwellings of the gods. The powerful protector is a symbol of abundance, good fortune and prosperity, and these universally desired blessings are represented on this 5 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin, which features luxurious touches of gold plating that light up your view of Tianlong among the clouds.

The Heavenly Dragon carries blessings and protection for every place you call home.

A golden dragon is traditionally a symbol of strength, power and wealth, and on your coin’s reverse, Tianlong is depicted with a pearl in its mouth—a popular Chinese motif since ancient times. Pearls continue to be associated with wisdom and wealth, spiritual energy (often in connection with the moon) and enlightenment.

Designed by Simon Ng, your coin’s reverse features a selectively gold-plated depiction of Tianlong, the benevolent Heavenly Dragon of Chinese mythology and the protector of celestial dwellings. With its feathered tail coiling gracefully behind it, Tianlong flits among the swirly clouds and holds a pearl in its mouth. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
