In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature embodying power, wealth and good fortune. Dragons are frequently depicted in pursuit of the flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment, which is often represented swirling through mist, smoke, and shadows. Like the dragon, the tiger is considered a lucky animal and has been held in awe for centuries. The pattern on the forehead of a tiger is very similar to the Chinese character for "king" hence it has become a symbol of bravery and power. In feng shui, the dragon and the tiger are considered perfect matches for one another.
According to the traditional Chinese philosophical account of natural balance and interdependence, the tiger is'yin', or female energy, and the dragon is'yang' (male). The coin's reverse depicts exquisitely detailed representations of a dragon, a tiger and a flaming pearl, with a stylised representation of clouds in the background. The design includes The Perth Mint's'P' mintmark. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2018 year-date are shown on the coin's obverse.
The coin's high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike.
