The Year of the Dragon is one of these 12 animal signs, and it is considered one of the most auspicious and powerful years in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Dragon are believed to possess certain personality traits and characteristics associated with the dragon, which is a symbol of strength, courage, and good fortune in Chinese culture.
The concept of a “Lunar Year of the Dragon” is related to the Chinese zodiac, which is a calendar system based on lunar cycles. In the Chinese zodiac, there are 12 animal signs, and each year is associated with one of these animals, along with one of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), creating a 60-year cycle.
This unique Lunar Silver collection offers fans of the Zodiac a unique depiction of each lunar animal in the 12-year cycle. There is one common design for each animal that is featured on both a 1 oz silver round and a 10 oz silver bar.
For the 2024 Year of the Dragon Release, the design captures a serpent-like dragon with a long, coiled body and wings near the top of its figure. Interestingly, as the dragon’s body coils through the middle of the design field it forms a figure 8. The large wings and head are set in right-profile relief at the top of the design.
The 1 oz silver round and 10 oz silver bar are available individually or in bulk, with a special third option available for the 1 oz silver round. You can buy 2024 1 oz Year of the Dragon Silver Rounds with special Lunar Series Cards. These red cards feature the release details on the front with specific dates of the Year of the Dragon on the reverse, as well as the characteristics of those born in the Year of the Dragon and the Year of the Wood Dragon mark on the back.
