2018 Canada $25 Dragon Boat Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

Canada's dragon boat festivals are the continuation of a tradition that originated 2,000 years ago in China, where the dragon is the mythical ruler of water and rain. Engraved in ultra-high relief, the colourful Chinese dragon rises up from the coin to celebrate the cultural aspect of dragon boat racing and the spirit of its participants, who paddle to the sounds of the drum that is the boat's beating heart.

- CAPTURES THE COLOURFUL PAGEANTRY: Highlighted by the application of colour over the engraving, the dragon's head on the reverse is every bit as a colourful as the elaborately painted dragon boats.
- TRADITION MEETS CONTEMPORARY: In addition to its colour-over-engraved features, the traditional depiction of a Chinese dragon is rich in symbolism and includes a few modern design elements, such as the stylized background that adds an outstanding amount of etched details.
