The Chinese Zodiac is associated not only with the 12 animal signs but also with the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Each animal sign is further connected to one of these elements in a 60-year cycle. Therefore, you can have a Year of the Wood Dragon, Fire Dragon, Earth Dragon, Metal Dragon, or Water Dragon.
2024 marks the start of the Year of the Wood Dragon. People born in the Year of the Wood Dragon are believed to possess the positive traits of both the Dragon sign and the Wood element. They may be seen as ambitious, charismatic, and creative individuals who have a natural ability to lead and inspire others. At the same time, the influence of Wood may add a touch of compassion and a willingness to cooperate with others. There are 2024 Lunar Dragon Gold bullion options available to investors from mints around the globe.
