Ao Qin, Dragon King of the South, is a revered deity who controls the weather in the South China Sea. When worshiped properly, Ao Qin can bring good weather, which for the Chinese people often meant a good crop was in store for them. Temples across the region have been resurrected in honor of the Dragon King, where chants and dances are performed to gain his favor. Each Dragon King has a color associated with him. For the Vermillion Dragon, that color is red, which signifies his mastery of fire and his ability to control lightning.
When you order 2022 13.5 oz Antique Vermillion Dragon Coins, you will receive a coin housed inside a beautiful display box. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity. These stunning coins have been minted with an innovative process known as Bi-Metal Reverse, which combines a copper base with a top layer of silver. This allows for an impressive 80 mm diameter, which is nearly twice the size of a normal 2 oz silver coin. This enables the impressive dragon design to emerge with greater clarity and detail across its expansive surface.
The obverse of 2022 13.5 oz Republic of Chad Vermillion Dragon Coins features the Chad coat of arms. This design depicts a goat and a lion holding up a shield, with the official motto listed beneath. The country of origin, year, and denomination are inscribed on the obverse as well.
On the reverse side of the 2022 Antique Republic of Chad Dragon Coin is a depiction of the Vermillion Dragon. This stunning design shows Ao Qin with his head submerged in the sea while the other half of his body extends above the water. The water portion of the design includes red enamel to signify Ao Qin’s representative color and command of fire.
