Depicting the mystical Dragon and Phoenix pairing, this Perth Mint silver coin forms the shape of the figure 8 – thought to be a very lucky and fortuitous number in traditional Chinese cultures. According to feng shui tradition, the dragon and the phoenix are considered perfect matches for one another. The phoenix is the ‘yin’ to the dragon’s ‘yang’ in the well known philosophical symbol of balance. And the number eight, besides sounding auspiciously like the Chinese word meaning ‘good fortune’, is also viewed as a symbol for infinity – providing unending prosperity! Naturally then, the mintage of this tremendous two ounce silver coin, struck in the shape of an 8, has been set to a paltry 3,888 coins. A dramatic, impressive (its 70mm long!), and mystical coin, the Perth Mint 2020 is a beauty!
