Since his first design was featured on a Canadian coin 16 years ago, artist Simon Ng’s work has been minted nearly 40 times.    

While his design process follows a familiar rhythm, Simon sees every design as an opportunity to tell an important story in a unique way – even when the coin’s subject matter is thousands of years old.

As we enter the Lunar New Year on February 10th, this is the perfect chance to dive into the fine details of Simon’s Year of the Dragon coin designs and the delicate, yet deliberate decisions that pay homage to the vibrant Asian traditions and heritage of our Asian Canadian communities.
