2022 2 oz Republique du Tchad The Hatched Series - Chinese Dragon Egg Antiqued High Relief Silver Coin
A mythical creature that embodies power, strength, and fortune, the Chinese dragon is one of the four celestial animals in Feng Shui and is highly regarded for bearing “Sheng Chi”, or “celestial breath.” The breath of the dragon is the most desired energy in Feng Shui as its presence is believed to attract wealth, luck, and success. The formidable creature was also used exclusively by the Emperor in ancient China, reflecting nobility and excellence to the highest degree.
The egg of the Chinese dragon is said to have to incubate over thousands of years on land and sea before it finally hatches and forms fully in a manner of minutes. Seizing this precise moment, this piece depicts the Chinese dragon egg just as it hatches – the dragon emerges with its head rising high, while its tail and body peek out from the shell. It holds onto a crystal ball with both claws, symbolizing a powerful and inherent control of the future. The shell of the egg is finished with scales of varying textures to give a textured and natural feel. Fluid strokes that define the dragon’s mane flow beautifully from its head, finishing the artifact with an artistic flair.
A rare and coveted piece made from 2 oz of 999 pure silver and die-cut with fine precision, the Chinese Dragon Egg makes an exquisite gift for new beginnings and occasions. Bullion Precious metal collectors would appreciate the intricate engraving, delivered in a super-high relief and topped with antiqued silver finishing. Measures 35 by 45 mm and in a limited quantity of 500 pieces only.
