Product Description

Another Mint coup - a Yin and Yang shaped silver proof coins set! A Tiger and a Dragon are locked in battle on these amazingly auspicious, full color pure silver proof coins - that fit together! Uniquely shaped - get yours today!

Locked in their ancient battle positions, the Tiger and Dragon struggle for dominance - equal and opposing forces, yin and yang. This exquisitely designed 99.99% pure silver coin set, featuring two distinct proof coins that fit together as one, celebrates the ageless story of these two mythic powers. These amazing yin and yang-shaped silver coins feature two heroes of Chinese tradition — the Tiger and the Dragon — fit together to form a perfect whole. The theme of balance is fully realized in their stunning imagery, rich color, and singular design.

These amazing coins are designed to fit together to form a single circle. Shaped in the traditional Chinese yin form, the first coin features a stylized Tiger set against a black field decorated with traditional auspicious cloud motifs from Chinese art. The Tiger stalks across the white dot that traditionally appears in the black yin form to connote balance. The eastern portion of design features an intricately engraved border that is completed on the other coin, forming a full decorative outer circle when the two coins are fitted together.

The second coin is shaped in the traditional yang form and features a vividly hued Dragon. The Dragon, like the Tiger, is set against a colored background — in this case, the traditional white background of the yang form. As on the yin coin, a balancing black dot appears in the image, wrapped in the sinewy coils of the Dragon’s tail. The background is decorated with stylized auspicious clouds.

The unique reverses of both coins feature the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The remaining design elements on the reverses are drawn from imagery found in traditional Chinese ceramics art, including beautifully engraved flowers and branches against a background of stylized auspicious clouds.

Yin and Yang

In Chinese culture yin yang represents two opposing principles in nature. Yin is characterized as slow, soft, yielding, cold, wet, and passive; and is associated with water, the earth, the moon, femininity, and night time. In contrast, Yang is fast, hard, solid, focused, hot, dry, and aggressive; and is associated with fire, sky, the sun, masculinity and day time.
