The Welsh dragon is a fearsome beast, once flown on the banners of the battlefield. In Chinese mythology, dragons can control the elements and are symbols of power and strength. As The Royal Mint celebrates 50 years at its current home in Llantrisant, South Wales and continues to expand its bullion business into Asia, it’s only fitting that we release a coin celebrating the legendary creature that connects two very different cultures, revered by East and West.
For 2018, we are excited to reveal a bullion coin featuring two dragons side by side. Struck in Wales, the home of the red dragon, and inspired by China, this silver one ounce coin represents an exciting investment opportunity from The Royal Mint.
Limited worldwide mintage of 50,000.
The reverse depicts two dragons, one representing the Chinese dragon and one depicting the Welsh dragon. The coin includes the inscription “TWO DRAGONS” as well as the purity and year date.
The obverse displays the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the face value of 2 pounds while using a guilloche background design.
Each 2018 Two Dragons 1oz coin is presented in individual capsules. Capsules are issued in rolls of 20 with 5 rolls (100 coins) to a box.
