In ancient China, the dragon was closely associated with the emperor and imperial power. The dragon was considered the ultimate symbol of authority, representing the ruler’s legitimacy and divine right to govern. The emperor’s robe, known as the dragon robe, featured dragon motifs as a sign of his high status.

On the obverse of the 2024 Proof British Gold Year of the Dragon Coin, you will find an effigy of King Charles III. His Majesty is shown here in left-profile relief in a portrait that lacks a crown. This portrait was created in late 2022 by Martin Jennings.
The reverse side of 2024 1/4 oz Proof Gold Year of the Dragon Coin features a Chinese dragon effigy. This image depicts the Chinese dragon above a river setting. In addition to the animal sign, the Chinese zodiac also has five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Each animal sign is associated with one of these elements, creating a 60-year cycle. So, there are variations like Wood Dragon, Fire Dragon, etc., occurring every 60 years.
