Note the 3-dimensional effect that has been integrated into the coin to show its large dorsal fins down the neck, smaller scales around its head, and even the beasts sharp teeth. Further down on the coin, in a separate, small bubble, are images of four fairies. Even though they are a quarter of the dragons size, you can see detail in their faces, wings and garments. This intricate detail shows the talent of the artists and the quality craftsmanship of the coins that The Monterey Company produces.
