The Design:

The design features a classic Asian interpretation of the mythical Dragon, complete with auspicious clouds of good fortune. This proof coin is double struck with a frosted cameo finish, the highest quality produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.  This is a substantial coin, weighing just over one ounce of pure .9999 fine silver. 

Year of the Dragon:

The Dragon is a supernatural, celestial power; cherished in Chinese culture for its wisdom and the prosperity it brings to earth. The Dragon is the ultimate “doer,” and tackles everything with fiery enthusiasm. It’s extremely loyal to its loved ones and will come to the rescue every time. Right or wrong, forget about steering a Dragon away from a disastrous situation—duty calls! The Dragon may have a big ego and demanding ways, but it inspires everyone it comes into contact with—this magical character is too dynamic and captivating to resist!

The Year of the Dragon also ruled 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940, 1928, 1916 and 1904.
