2021 Canadian $8 Triumphant Dragon Pure Gold Coin


Celebrate the Chinese New Year with a dragon symbol of success.

Inspired by the Chinese proverb "The carp has leaped over the Dragon Gate," this beautiful gold coin design represents triumph over adversity. According to legend, many carp swim upstream and attempt to jump the Dragon Gate, but few prevail. If a carp bravely perseveres and completes the final leap, it is rewarded for its hard work by being transformed into a powerful golden dragon — like the triumphant dragon on this 99.99% pure gold coin.

May all your hard work, determination and perseverance be rewarded in the new year. Order your gold dragon coin today!

The reverse design by graphic designer Albert Ng is inspired by the Chinese legend of the Carp and the Dragon Gate and influenced by depictions of Chi Wen, second son of the Dragon King. Having completed the final leap to the top of the waterfall, the carp is rewarded with a transformation and is depicted as a Chinese dragon-headed fish. Beneath it are the water symbols of adversity and obstacles to overcome in order to achieve success.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
