Story

Imperial dragons

The dragon commands the highest respect in Chinese culture. For thousands of years, it was associated with the emperor and his descendants, symbolising wisdom, enlightenment, and benevolence. Those born under the sign of the lunar dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.

Coloured and gilded designs

The set comprises nine coloured coins each portraying a sinuous dragon and a flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom. The tenth coin, depicting a forward facing dragon with symbolic water cascading from its mouth, is entirely gilded in fine gold - an exclusive finish only available in this set. Included in each design is the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, and the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024’.
