The Dragon is a mythical creature that is known for flying and breathing fire. Folklore also speaks of the Dragon as an insurmountable beast, that enslaves whoever dares to challenge it with its breath of fire. Ancient Chinese rulers would prefer their names to be "dragon", since it represents authority and immortality. Having a lofty reputation among Chinese culture, the Dragon represents honor, dignity, and power. Those born under the Dragon year are known to be energetic, smart, and do not give up during hard times. Since the dragon also has fire for a defense, those born under the dragon are known to contain a fiery and uneasy temper.
The dragon, on the reverse, is looking at a pearl, which represents prosperity and by combining it with the dragon, the coin represents power and prosperity. The date, 2000, is written vertically alongside of the dragon on the left hand side. 1/2oz .999 silver is quoted underneath the dragon and a beautifully embellished design is fixed around the dragon to enhance the silver coin. On the obverse, is the magnificent portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the coin's dollar value, which is 50c, is written around the rim. Like all Perth Mint products, this silver coin's design is impeccable. This coin is delivered in a capsule that may or may not be from Perth Mint but is mint Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Although many 1/2 ounce coins were made in 2000, the higher mintage hasn't deterred any investors away. The Dragon year is looked at with honor and respect and those that receive this silver coin will feel the same way. You can hold the ancient Chinese fortune of authority and wealth in your hands but it works just as perfect as a gift to commemorate a special occasion.
