2018 CANADA 8 DOLLARS FINE SILVER COIN DRAGON LUCK NGC PF70 MATTE ER

This $8 fine silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint features the legendary dragon that has been an integral part of Asian cultures for thousands of years. Unlike the fire-breathing villains of the West, Asian dragons are friendly and benevolent. They are powerful beings that bring life-giving rain to crops during Chinese New Year, the most important celebration in Chinese culture. Their noble strength also shines during dragon boat races, as paddlers propel their boats forward to the beat of drums. Wherever Chinese communities are found throughout the world, the benevolent dragon is sure to follow, bringing its ancient cultural celebrations to cities and towns across Canada. 

The coin is dated 2018 with an $8 denomination and weighs just over one quarter ounce of pure silver. The mintage is limited to just 20,000. The design is intended to bring good luck and fortune to its holder. Life is full of promise under the positive influence of this commanding dragon portrait by Canadian artist Simon Ng, with the Chinese character for good fortune engraved on the right. The dragon’s face dominates the design - its snake-like body flows along the lower edge and beyond the field of the coin.
