The number 8 has long been considered a lucky number in Chinese culture. The origin of this notion is partly due to the pronunciation of the Chinese word for eight, ba, which sounds like the word for prosperity, fa. As for the tiger and the dragon, they are seen as embodiments of the Yin-Yang philosophy that suggests conflicting forces bring harmony to the universe. The tiger with its quiet, watchful presence represents Yin, while the dragon’s aggressive, fiery nature symbolizes Yang.
Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse design of 2022 3 oz Antique Figure 8 Dragon and Tiger Coins. This popular effigy was created by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint in 1998. It depicts the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. You will also see a curved line extending down the field to form the Yin-Yang design. There are inscriptions that read Elizabeth II, Tokelau, 15 Dollars, 2022.

They each are extended around a portion of the figure 8 and appear ready to engage in conflict with one another. The exquisite detail of this design includes octagon-shaped holes as a sign of the Bagua motif common to Chinese spiritual traditions.
