The Scottsdale Mint is responding to an unusual level of demand for gold and silver products with an equally unusual early issue of one of its most precious and visually-striking gold collectibles. Commemorating the forthcoming Year of the Dragon, this gorgeous gold collectible comes in a limited mintage and bearing a face value that pays tribute to the good luck and wealth associations of the number “8” in Chinese numerology, making it a double auspicious tribute to one of the most august Chinese zodiac symbols. Featuring high-quality engravings and the mirror-like finish of a proof-like collectible, the 2024 Samoa Year of the Dragon 1 oz Gold Coin is available from Provident Metals.
The 2024 Gold Samoa Year of the Dragon Coin comes with its own individual Certificate of Authenticity. It ships fully insured by Provident Metals in a mint-issue capsule inside gorgeous customized box packaging, which includes a collectible display case in the shape of the iconic traditional Chinese “Sycee” boat-shaped gold and ingot coins.
The coin’s obverse side features Samoa’s official coat of arms, confirming it as legal tender. This is accompanied by inscriptions verifying its weight and gold content, country of issue, and face value, while the inscription “2024” shows its official year of issue.
The reverse side features a Chinese Dragon in full flight, captured in ornate detail with a dynamic sense of motion, and offset against a proof-life mirrored backdrop. This is accompanied by the inscription “YEAR OF THE DRAGON.”
The year 2024 brings the next Year of the Dragon, when people born under this sign will get to celebrate their connection to the legendary celestial creatures of Chinese myth. In the traditions of Chinese astrology, the Dragon is identified with leadership qualities: ambition and tenacity, capability and intellect, the kind of personalities who relish a challenge and who can sometimes be demanding of those around them. Famous Dragons in popular culture have included Bruce Lee, Salvador Dali, Martin Luther King, Jr., and John Lennon; no doubt there will be new famous names to add to that list by the time this early-release coin’s official year of issue comes around.
