I bought this mostly due to the design. I also purchaced the bar form of The Year of The Dragon. It has great detail, very shiny, crisp markings on it. Just a very, very nice piece overall. The only thing I did not like was the holder that it comes in and the bar form is the same way. Its a clear rubber like plastic that is seaedl entirely all the way around, You cannot remove the piece without cutting this plastic. The plastic, to give you referance is like what a pool float or beach ball is made of. But clear. It smudged the flat shiny parts of the coin and the bar. I promtly removed them from these holders and put them in a hard clear holder. But other than that I would highly recommend this to my friends and family. I am very satisfied with my purchase and will be back for more in the near future.

I bought this because I love this design and got it for an ok price. I bought two of these and one year of the snake. My snake was badly scratched and one of the dragons was lightly scratched. I love these rounds but not as fun to show off when everybody notices the scratch and reminds me. I would not recomend purely because of the damage. But it could honestly be bad luck I would of highly recomended them if they all three were in the nice condition of the first one.

          Comments about 1 oz Silver Round - APMEX (2012 Year of the Dragon):

          Apmex Lunar rounds are great in their detailing in both design and execution. Unlike many mints with Lunar products, the attention to choosing the correct (classical) Chinese words to adorn each year's design is admirable. The image is also exceptionally well done. Exclusive to Apmex the cost is often under a $1 over spot (on sale). I buy to hold, but the favorable attention from my Chinese friends when I show them some of my Lunars gives me confidence that there will be a ready market for these over other silver products when I want to sell.

                        I bought this as a gift for my 14 yr old son and to see how APMEX did business. Was very pleased I had to pay shipping because it was the only piece I bought but as it was a gift and not an investment didn't have a big problem with that. After seeing how good APMEX customer service was I made a slightly larger investment purchase and was very pleased again. Thanks
