Shop/International Coins (By The Singapore Mint)/Macau Lunar Series
The new Macau lunar coin series (2008 – 2019) issued by the Monetary Authority of Macau and exclusively minted and marketed by The Singapore Mint, draws from the richness and diversity of Macau’s distinctive culture where East meets West.

The fifth coin in this lunar collection features the Chinese Dragon on its obverse and The Senado Square- one of 12 selected sites in Macau listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on its reverse.

Traditionally, the dragon is a symbol of nobility, a sacred emblem used solely by the Emperor. Powerful and heroic, it is also seen as a protector, warding off evil spirits.

As a reference to its significance in Chinese culture, the dragon is presented on the obverse in a Chinese calligraphy style. The bold curves of the dragon’s body actually follows the fluid strokes of how the Chinese character for ‘dragon’ is written in calligraphy.

The dragon resides in the heavens and this celestial connection is accentuated by the oriental cloud motif on the obverse. The right half is coloured in three vibrant hues, adding a stylistic element which complements the contemporary design of the coin. Clouds add to the auspiciousness of this coin as they represent good luck. Repeated in a continuous pattern, the clouds form a blanket of endless fortune.

Macau’s famous Senado Square, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is depicted on the reverse of the coin. Emanating a convivial atmosphere all year round, this popular tourist hotspot is also where major events and celebrations are held. Neo-classical buildings painted in cheery, pastel colours line the streets, creating a Mediterranean feel. The pavements paved by Portuguese craftsmen with colourful pebbles in a wave-like pattern are a distinct reminder of Macau’s Portuguese heritage.
