2017 1OZ SILVER DRAGON & PEARL ANTIQUED COIN
Bahamas Relief Support through Silver Coins.
Why order GEM BU Australia Antiqued Silver Dragon & Pearl coins?
The dragon is a divine mythical creature in Chinese culture, often depicted with a flaming pearl, a representation of spiritual energy, power and immortality. Issued by Tuvalu, this antiqued coin struck by the Perth Mint from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver combines the two symbols, featuring an innovative rotating replica pearl charm at its center. Having a hand-applied antiqued finish, each of the 3,000 Dragon and Pearl coins minted will be unique in appearance.
Intricately detailed and unique design:
Two dragons are featured on the reverse, dramatically circling the pearl charm at the center. The image by Perth Mint designer Ing Ing Jong includes the inscriptions “1 OZ. 9999 SILVER” and the Perth Mint’s mark “P.”
Ian Rank-Broadley’s sculpted image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is positioned above the pearl charm on the obverse. The pearl is framed by a beaded border, which is surrounded by the inscriptions “1 DOLLAR,” “TUVALU 2017” and “QUEEN ELIZABETH II.”
Bahamas Relief Support through Silver Coins
The Bahamas is recovering from the worst hurricane ever to hit the Island and needs your help. If you purchase this beautiful limited edition silver coin 20 meals will be sent to the Bahamas. What a great Xmas gift or any other gift for that matter. Let’s band together and help the needy people of the world through silver. One doesn’t know the blessings he or she has until they have been taken away.
People on the Island and in the surrounding area need help. Food and fresh water are in short supply as the transportation to rural areas has been cut off and will take weeks if not months to get back to normal. A profile on The Weather Channel’s Facebook page about a brave Bahamian woman was captured by Birnbaum and is a particularly compelling look at what people are enduring under the circumstances. Organizations are still providing meals, and many people are relying on tempory housing or sleeping quarters. The Miami Herald reported in November that water would not be safe to drink until the summer of 2020.
