Celebrate the 2024 Year of the Dragon with this exceptionally large and visually impressive 2024 $250 one kilogram fine silver coin. The coin is both a work of art and an ultra-low mintage collectible, with a mintage of just 588 pieces. HST/GST exempt.
The main design features a highly detailed depiction of the Chinese Zodiac’s most powerful animal sign, the Dragon, amid auspicious cherry blossoms and clouds. Facing the viewer, the Dragon offers the blessing of its magical powers, as it clutches the Dragon Pearl or Fire Ball representing wisdom and bearing the Chinese character for Dragon.
The obverse features the posthumous effigy of Queen Elizabeth II including the double dates 1952-2022 representing her 70 year reign. This is likely to be an anomaly for 2024 dated coins, as a new King Charles III effigy is expected to be introduced.
The coin has a huge diameter of 102 mm and a weight of just over one kilogram (32.15 ounces) of pure silver.
