The dragon is held up in Chinese culture as both a symbol of power and strength, as well as wealth and good fortune. For emperors, the dragon was the ideal symbol of their own divine power and strength, while wealthy elites are often associated with the dragon because of their fortunes. The 2018 5 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Dragon Coin is currently available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside of a black display box with presentation shipper and Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Coins feature rimless blank and antique polish!
  • Mintage limited to 500 coins only!
  • Consists of Five Troy ounces of .9999 fine silver.
  • Issued a face value of $5 (TVD) by Tuvalu.
  • Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait appears on the obverse.
  • A dragon pursues a flaming pearl on the reverse.
  • Design created by Ing Ing Jong.

The flaming pearl is a popular design accompanying the dragon in a lot of Chinese art. The flaming pearl is a metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment, and spiritual essence and it is believed that the pearl has the power to rid a person of trouble and bring success, fortune, and good health. As such, it makes sense that many would pursue such an item!

Chinese culture also reveres the dragon as a mythical creature symbolizing good fortune and wealth. The idea of a dragon pursuing a flaming pearl is one which, in art, symbolizes mankind’s pursuit of a better career and financial stability wherein the dragon represents human ambitions toward those goals. The goals are, of course, represented by the flaming pearl.

On the reverse of the 2018 5 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Dragon Coin this dynamic plays out in the form of a long, slithering dragon wrapped around a flaming pearl as it seeks to capture the gem. Ing Ing Jong of the Perth Mint designed this side of the coins. Jong’s prominent other works include the reverse designs in the Perth Mint’s Lunar Series II collection, a responsibility she’s fulfilled since 2013 for the mint.

The obverse of all 2018 Antique Silver Tuvalu Dragon Coins features an image of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait depicts the Queen aged 69 and was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.

These 2018 5 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Dragon Coins are available to you inside of black, protective display boxes. The boxes are housed inside of dragon-themed presentation shippers with full-color illustration and the coins include a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each 5 oz silver coin is struck on a beautiful rimless blank and features an antique polish which highlights the intricate elements of the design.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
