This breathtaking silver coin is portraits of second release in the “DRAGON KING OF THE FOUR SEAS ” series and features AZURE DRAGON. Ao Guang (敖廣) is the Dragon King of the East Sea (东海龙王), or sometimes referred to as Azure Dragon, Blue-Green Dragon, or 青龍 in Chinese. He rules over the season of Spring and the element of Wood. In this piece, the Dragon King rises to overlook the direction of the East with his long and thick body emerging from the sea. The scales and spikes that run along his body are detailed in an earthy and smooth texture to mirror his standing as the divine ruler of the Wood element. As a symbol of power and strength, he stands with poise commanding the waters beneath and ahead of him. The horizon between sky and sea is marked across the collectible artistically, through the use of deep indentations on an ultra-high relief.
Through the use of a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Reverse”, it achieves a remarkable weight and 80mm diameter size - making it double the size of a regular 2 oz collectible. By combining 2 oz of silver as a base with a top layer of 11.5 oz of copper, the result is a super ultra-high relief that brings out every detail to maximum effect, then finished with antiqued silver to conclude.
