Every year, one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac is celebrated. The 12 animals of the zodiac are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. The most well-known story of how these 12 animals came to be chosen was that there was a race across a river and these animals represented the first 12 to reach the finish line. 2024 introduces us to the Year of the Dragon, thus JM Bullion would like to offer you the 2024 1/2 oz Samoa Silver Lunar Year of the Dragon Coin, available for purchase now.
