The Dragon coin is the most popular animal in the series. I am a Dragon and it is a must have for any investor or collector born in the 'year of the dragon" . This coin is very rare now and hard to find. Like all Perth Mint Lunar series products the craftsmanship, relief, and quality are the best in the industry.
