The 2012 Gold Lunar coins commemorate the Year of the Dragon, the only imaginary animal in the series and one that has been part of Chinese culture for over 6,000 years. This 1 oz Gold coin honors the dragon’s place in the Chinese ancient lunar calendar and is said to give power, strength and luck to those who are born under its symbol.
