The dragon is a coveted, sacred beast in the cultural history of China. In fact, legend states that it was four dragons who provided the people of Earth with much-needed rain when the Jade Emperor ignored their needs and those dragons even laid down their own bodies to form the region’s four great rivers. Dragons remain vital in modern Chinese culture as well. Today, 2019 2 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Double Dragon Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.
