The Welsh Red Dragon is the third design in Provident’s Celtic Lore series, featuring the dragon from the early legends of Merlin standing in front of a castle. Stories stemming back to the twelfth century tell of the red dragon fighting an invading white dragon, causing destruction in their wake. The king of Britain trapped the two dragons within a hill located in northwest Wales, where they remained for centuries. Later, King Vortigern attempted to build a castle atop the hill, but progress was demolished each night. He eventually learned of the dragons below and freed them in order to build his castle. The red dragon went on to defeat the white dragon, and has since become the national symbol of Wales.
The shared reverse in the Celtic Lore series features a celtic knot as the main focus, with additional celtic artwork around the rim. Two wolves facing inward are positioned on either side. Inscriptions read “CELTIC LORE” and “5 OZ 999 FINE SILVER.”
The Celtic Lore series features five designs based on the folklore, myths, and legends of the Celts. Each round showcases the original artwork of world-renowned artist and illustrator Howard David Johnson, along with the work of master sculptor Luigi Badia. These limited edition silver bullion rounds were struck at the Osborne Mint, in partnership with Anonymous Mint.
Each Welsh Red Dragon round is edge-numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Rounds are protected inside of an Air-Tite capsule and a Provident-branded coin box.
