Chinese dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and Chinese folklore. The dragons have many animal-like forms such as turtles, fish, and imaginary, but they are most commonly depicted as snake-like with four legs. Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it. With this, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power and strength. In Chinese daily language, excellent and outstanding people are compared to a dragon, while incapable people with no achievements are compared with other, disesteemed creatures, such as a worm. A number of Chinese proverbs and idioms feature references to a dragon, such as “Hoping one's son will become a dragon”.
The reverse of the coin depicts the highly intricate detailed Mandala design surrounding a Chinese Dragon. In the middle a beautiful Ruby as heart of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the Fiji Coat of Arms and the inscriptions: “FIJI” – the issue country, “2017” – the year of issue, “3 oz Ag 999” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver and “10 DOLLARS” – the face value.
