Introducing the remarkable 2024 Proof British Year of the Dragon 1/4 oz Gold Coin, a highlight of the Chinese zodiac-themed series. This coin celebrates the Year of the Dragon and is a must-have for collectors. You can find this stunning coin at Provident Metals.
In ancient China, the dragon was a symbol of power connected to the emperor’s rule. It represented the emperor’s authority and right to lead the kingdom. The emperor wore a special robe called the dragon robe, which was covered in dragon designs to show his importance.
On the front of the 2024 Proof Year of the Dragon 1/4 oz Gold Coin, you’ll see a portrait of King Charles III facing to the left. This portrait, made by Martin Jennings in late 2022, depicts the king without a crown, making it a distinctive image. Inscriptions include CHARLES III, D.G. REX. F.D., 25 POUNDS, and 2024.
Flipping the coin, the reverse side features a majestic Chinese dragon over a tranquil river setting. The Chinese zodiac involves more than just animals it also includes five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Each animal corresponds to an element, creating a 60-year cycle. This means variations like the Wood Dragon or Fire Dragon come around every 60 years. The inscriptions read YEAR OF THE DRAGON, 2024, and the Chinese symbol for a dragon.
The most recent Year of the Dragon was in 2012, and now gives way to the latest Year of the Dragon in 2024. The years of the Dragon include 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, and so on.
Each 2024 Proof British Year of the Dragon 1/4 oz Gold Coin comes in its own unique packaging. The Royal Mint provides a wooden display box, a Certificate of Authenticity, and a matching outer cover to enhance its appeal.
