DETAILS

To celebrate the Lunar Year of the Dragon, the Royal Australian Mint has released this 2024 $1 Uncirculated Two-Coin Set featuring the confident and noble Dragon and the Lunar calendar wheel. The set is designed to appeal to collectors or those seeking an auspicious and traditional gift for Lunar New Year.

The Dragon is the fifth of the twelve signs in the Chinese Zodiac. According to legend twelve animals participated in a race across a river to allow the Jade Emperor to establish the order of the signs of the Chinese horoscope. Everyone thought that the Dragon would come first as it could fly, but it stopped to help some villages along the way. It also felt sorry for the Rabbit and decided to help it ashore first, allowing the Rabbit to take fourth place.

People born in the Year of the Dragon are said to be natural born leaders. Famous Dragons include US statesman Martin Luther King Jr., musicians John Lennon and Rihanna, actors Kurt Douglas and Keanu Reeves and Australian artist Ken Done and cricketer Brett Lee.
