Inspired by the Chinese legend of The Carp and the Dragon Gate, the selectively gold-plated reverse design by Canadian artist Simon Ng represents the dramatic moment when the carp has overcome adversity and is transformed into a dragon.

The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. "The carp has leaped over the Dragon Gate" is a joyful acknowledgement that someone has successfully passed a tough exam.It's a centuries-old expression that dates back to imperial times and the rigorous examinations for entry into civil service.
