In Chinese mythology, dragons are closely linked to water. They were believed to control rivers, lakes, and seas. Ancient Chinese people often prayed to dragons for rain during times of drought and as protection from floods.
The Chinese dragon has evolved over time. Early depictions in ancient China often resembled serpentine creatures with antler-like horns, while later, more elaborate representations incorporated features from other animals, such as the lion’s mane and fish-like scales. This evolving imagery reflects the cultural and artistic changes in China over the centuries.
The obverse side of the 2024 1 oz Proof Silver Lunar Dragon Coin comes with a depiction of the Rwandan coat of arms. This design captures the modern seal of the nation that consists of a traditional, woven basket with branches of coffee and sorghum, as well as traditional warrior shields. The basket is backed by a cogwheel.
On the reverse field of 2024 Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Dragons comes with an image of the Chinese dragon. Dragons continue to hold a special place in Chinese culture, and their symbolism remains an integral part of Chinese traditions and celebrations. This design shows a traditional Chinese dragon in left-profile relief with its serpent-like body and four legs.
These 2024 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Dragon Coins are available with frosted design elements and lettering, as well as mirrored fields. The coins are packaged in individual acrylic capsules and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
