The Chinese Lunar Calendar follows a 12-year cycle that features a different animal for each of those 12 years. The cycle starts with the Year of the Mouse, concludes with the Year of the Pig, and resets with the mouse every 12 years. Near the middle of the cycle is the Year of the Dragon.

When you purchase one of these 1988 Chinese Lunar Year of the Dragon 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin in PF68 condition. This is the third-highest grade on the NGC scale and indicates a coin that showcases a beautiful strike, full luster, and a maximum of minuscule flaws. These flaws consist of only light, scattered contact marks. No scuff marks or hairlines are present.

UCAM visuals mean the coin is an ultra-cameo proof. Coins with these visual elements have strong, frosted designs contrasting against deeply-mirrored, clear fields.


For the obverse design of the 1988 Chinese Lunar Year of the Dragon Gold Coin, you will find the image of the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests. The design element includes inscriptions of 1988 and the nation of issue.


In the reverse design of 1988 Lunar Year of the Dragon 1 oz Gold Coins is a depiction of two dragons. Chinese dragons are commonly depicted as serpent-like figures with four or six legs and have forked tongues like a snake. Between the dragons is a flaming pearl. Inscriptions on this side include the 100 Yuan face value, as well as .999 1 OZ AU.


The Year of the Dragon is fifth in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The dragon is the only supernatural being in the Zodiac and has no parallel when it comes to its power, talent, and excellence.
