Design:

This engraved and selectively-coloured pair of coins is designed to fit together to form a single circle. Shaped in the traditional Chinese yin form, the first coin features the image of the tiger, the word “CANADA,” and the date “2018.” The tiger is stylized to mimic Chinese paper-cut folk art. Selective colour brings vibrancy to the design. The tiger is surrounded by 11 engraved cherry blossoms. The upper portion of the reverse features an intricate engraved border that is completed on the other coin, forming a full decorative outer circle when the two coins are fitted together. The second coin is shaped in the traditional yang form. Its reverse features the face value of “10 DOLLARS” along with a stylized yellow-gold dragon. The dragon, like the tiger, is designed in the style of paper-cut folk art and is adorned with vivid red motifs and a bright green ridge along its back. Nine engraved cherry blossoms surround it. The unique obverses of both coins feature the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt along with a branch of engraved cherry blossoms.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
