2024 Year Of The Dragon 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin
Product Code: 24S4193
Pre Order Ship from Mid Feb
Highlighting the fifth animal in the Chinese lunar calendar, this 1oz silver proof high relief coin is an impressive tribute to the lunar dragon and represents the very best in minting excellence and design.
According to Chinese tradition, the emperor ordered a great race between all the animals on Earth to determine who should occupy 12 positions in the lunar calendar. To complete the course, each animal had to cross a fast-flowing river. Leading the race, the noble dragon stopped to make rain for the people, ultimately reaching the opposite bank in fifth place.
The coin’s reverse portrays a dragon with water cascading from its mouth, stylised waves, and a flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024’ and a ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary.
The coin bears the Jody Clark Memorial Obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented with the dates of her reign ‘1952-2022’, as well as the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
Each individual coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the dragon became the fifth animal of the Chinese lunar calendar and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
