The Design:

A stylized dragon character, surrounded by lotus flowers and dark thunderclouds, which are an omen of prosperity and often associated with dragons. The coin is of the highest quality possible, with a double struck frosted cameo finish. With this oversized precious metal canvas, the Royal Canadian Mint has created a masterpiece work of art depicting the Chinese Lunar Year of the Dragon.

Year of the Dragon:

The year 2012 is ruled by the Dragon. The Dragon personality is the ultimate “doer”.  It tackles everything with fiery enthusiasm. The Dragon is 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 captivating to resist. 

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