In traditional Chinese culture, festivals are often an occasion for traditions that invoke good luck and auspicious omens for the community and for various friends and family. The Lion Dance is one of the most famous of the “masked dances” that attend various festivals, especially the New Year. It goes back centuries and is especially widely popular in South China, where it has given rise to multiple regional variations and from where it has spread through communities in a worldwide Chinese diaspora. Featuring vibrant costumes, masterfully athletic feats of dance, and energetic percussion music, this ancient art form is celebrated by the 2023 1 oz Silver Proof Fiji Auspicious Lion Dance Coin.

Coin Highlights:

  • Comes in a colorful box with an individual Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Issued in 2023!
  • Extremely limited mintage of just 1,000 pieces!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver with a proof-like finish.
  • Bears a face value of $1 as legal tender of the Republic of Fiji.

The 2023 Silver Proof Fiji Auspicious Lion Dance Coin features finely-detailed engravings against the mirrored backdrops of a proof-quality bullion collectible. It comes in a brightly-colored box with a Certificate of Authenticity, and each shipment is tracked and fully insured by Silver.com.

In China’s remote antiquity, masked dances were used to exorcise evil spirits and demons and to keep curses at bay. Masks took many forms, and by the Tang Dynasty, the lion mask was among their number. The Lion Dance flourished across China but became especially popular in the South, where it acquired many regional variations. They included the Fo Shan tradition, whose moves were based on kung fu, and the intricate He Shan tradition with its extra-bright costumes and vigorous drumming. Both are common sights at Chinese New Year celebrations around the world.

The coin’s reverse side features the head of a Lion Dance costume from these Cantonese traditions, engraved in painstaking detail and set against a decorative backdrop of Chinese characters and abstract symbols.

The coin’s obverse side features Fiji’s coat of arms: a heraldic shield flanked by Fijian warriors and crowned by a Polynesian outrigger canoe. The Republic’s official heraldry verifies it as legal tender. It’s joined by the inscriptions “FIJI 2023” and “ONE DOLLAR,” and is flanked by confirmations of the coin’s weight and purity, and surrounded by a decorative rim.

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.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

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.
