Chinese Dragon
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”.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin depicts the highly intricate and detailed design of a Chinese Dragon surrounded by famous Chinese elements. In the middle, a beautiful Coral insert as the heart of the coin. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “CHINESE DRAGON” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin features intricate designs and depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “2 DOLLARS” – the face value, “2018” – the year of issue and “NIUE” – the issuing country.
