Designed by Canadian design team Chris and Rosina Reid of Three Degrees Creative, your coin features an undulating dragon clutching a glowing pearl. The striking image covers the entire field of your large-format coin. With sculptural grace, the Chinese dragon clutches a pearl in its claw as it writhes through the cloud-filled sky. The image beautifully balances the intricate detail of the dragons scales and facial features against the flowing, ethereal cloud shapes. The pearl seems to rise from the coin in matchless detail. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt as well as the text CANADA, the date 2019, and the face value of 125 DOLLARS. Our idea was simple: to create an epic design that celebrates the story and design language of this traditional Asian character while also bringing fresh graphic impact. The hyper-realism of the pearl is spectacular. I happily spent many hours perfecting just that element alone. Those born in a Dragon year are known as Dragons and are said to have strong potential for prosperity, good health, and long life. Chinese dragon imagery dates back to the Neolithic Age. The dragon is often associated with yang energy, which functions with opposing yin energy to represent balance and harmony in the universe. In Chinas dynastic era, the dragon was associated with the Emperor himself.
