Wood dragon

According to the Chinese philosophy of Wuxing (Five Elements Theory), the ebb and flow of five fundamental elements - wood, fire, earth, metal, and water - are responsible for the change in all things in the cosmos. In lunar astrology, it is believed these interconnected elements take turns to further shape the destiny of people born under each sign. In 2024, the dragon is influenced by wood - consequently ‘wood dragons’ are thought to be warm, wise, generous, and compassionate.

Dragon design

The coin portrays five intricately coloured Chinese dragons centred around a spiral denoting the ever-recurring lunar cycle. Each dragon is accompanied by a circular motif containing the English word and Chinese character for one of the five elements. These motifs are appended with a symbolic representation of the element.
