More Info

The dragon is one of the most popular of all the animals in the lunar calendar, possibily because it is the only imaginary creature out of all twelve signs. These superb uncirculated coins are perfect for people born in dragon years – 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012. If you are born in the Year of the Dragon you are regarded as confident, independent, positive, courageous and passionate.

The Chinese year 4709 started on the January 23rd 2012. We sold out of the one ounce coin very quickly. 

The five ounce coin is the ideal choice for silver investors looking to buy high quality bullion with low premiums above spot.
