The Chinese zodiac is made up of 12 animals and reptiles, but the only one that is not real is the dragon. Yet the dragon is often referred to as the symbol of China. The legendary creatures symbolize strength, power and good luck, and are usually portrayed as lengthy, scaled beasts with four legs.
The dragon appears in all its power as the main symbol on the 2012 1 oz Year of the Dragon silver round at Provident Metals. Each round is composed of one ounce of .999 fine silver and, unlike many rounds, is ISO 9001 Certified, meaning it qualifies for your precious metals IRA.
Along with an artistic display, the obverse features a stylish dragon facing the Chinese symbol for dragon. Inscribed at the top of the round is “YEAR OF THE DRAGON.”
The reverse showcases the Forbidden City, which served as the emperors home for nearly 500 years from the Ming Dynasty through the Qing Dynasty. The Ming Dynasty ruled China from 1368-1644 and was replaced by the Qing from 1644-1912. The Forbidden City is now the Palace Museum and shows extensive artifacts and artworks from the two dynasties.
Inscribed on the reverse is “1 oz .999 FINE SILVER” and “WWW.PROVIDENTMETALS.COM,” as well as the initials GSM for the Golden State Mint.
People born in the years 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012 are Year of the Dragon.
