Description of obverse and reverse Issued as legal tender of Tuvalu, the coin’s obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, bordered by the inscriptions QUEEN ELIZABETH II, TUVALU, the 2014 year-date, the monetary denomination, and the weight and fineness of the coin. The coin’s reverse depicts four mythical creatures from ancient Chinese culture. They include a blue dragon, a white tiger, a red phoenix and a black tortoise, which surround a central gold-coloured ying-yang symbol, set against a classically struck background of stylised landscapes. The inscription CHINESE ANCIENT MYTHICAL CREATURES also appears in the design.
A brief annotation According to ancient Chinese mythology, the universe is divided into four quadrants, marking the beginning and end of the winter and summer solstices, and the autumn and spring equinoxes. These heavenly quadrants are known as the ‘Four Celestial Palaces’, each of which is represented by a guardian animal with a corresponding colour, Earth element and virtue.  The artistry of the four creatures and their stylised backgrounds inspired the 5oz platform for this collector release, with the use of colour highlighting the key design features.

Монета не понравилась, похожа на "фишку" с которыми мы играли в детстве. Для монеты не серьезно
