Celebrate the New Year with a Lunar Lucky Dragon gold coin. In the Chinese folktale “The Flower Dragon,” the Golden Dragon’s heart warms to a poor girl’s gift of flowers, as his own no longer grow due to his fiery breath. Soothed by her kindness, he rewards her with fortune and wealth and punishes the greedy.
The Lucky Flower Dragon coin presents a reverse design by Canadian designer Jai Paek featuring the expression of a traditional Chinese Dragon swirling its long scaly frame. The dragon’s fearsome appearance makes him no less honourable as he shall ring good luck to one with a kind mind. Two flowers blossom within its curving shape to represent the Chinese New Year. The obverse design by Susanna Blunt depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
