Symbolic and Historic -- a First from China's Shanghai Mint!
The masculine dragon of power, ambition and success paired with the feminine phoenix of prosperity, longevity and immortality has symbolized harmony and happiness for millennia. This timeless allegory is brought to vivid life with incredible detail through this proof's fascinating design.
Recently, China's government ceased the production of all non-legal tender commemorative. Fortunately, these Dragon and Phoenix Proofs were among the very last commemoratives to leave the country before the order was announced. Only time will tell if this decision is temporary or permanent. However, you could be ordering not only one of the first, but also one of the LAST Phoenix and Dragon Cash Coin-Style Proofs ever released by the Shanghai Mint!
