The Royal Canadian Mint has issued the beautiful Lucky Dragon coin for several years now to attract investors to this beautiful design. A standard 1 oz silver blank, these coins have design elements that have been struck in high relief. A high-relief strike includes using greater pressure in the coining press and striking the silver blank with a die multiple times to create a finished product that has greater visual depth.
All of the 2019 1 oz Canadian Lucky Dragon High Relief Silver Coins in this product listing come to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Individual coins in this series ship with a protective plastic flip, while multiples of 25 are housed inside of RCM mint tubes.
On the obverse face of 2019 1 oz Canadian Lucky Dragon High Relief Silver Coins is an image of Queen Elizabeth II. This design is the latest effigy of Her Majesty to feature on Canadian currency and was designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. It depicts the Queen in right-profile relief with no crown on her head, the first such design during her reign. This face of the coin has radial lines in the background field.
The reverse side of the 2019 1 oz Canadian Lucky Dragon High Relief Silver Coin bears the Chinese Lucky Dragon image. This design comes from Simon Ng and depicts the Chinese dragon with its body curled in the shape of a letter eight. Both the dragon and the number eight are viewed as lucky in Chinese culture.
Founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint is the sovereign mint of Canada. Established in the federal capital of Ottawa, the Ottawa Mint has been in operation since that time and is supported by operations at the Winnipeg Mint.
