Product Description

Grab the luck of the Dragon for the Chinese Lunar Zodiac New Year and Spring Festival 2018 - the Year of the Dog - with this extremely affordable, pure silver Canadian legal tender $8 (lucky eight!) matte proof!

For thousands of years, the legendary dragon has been an integral part of Asian cultures. Unlike the fire-breathing villains of the West, Asian dragons are friendly and benevolent. They are powerful beings that bring life-giving rain to crops during Chinese New Year, the most important celebration in Chinese culture. Their noble strength also shines during dragon boat races, as paddlers propel their boats forward to the beat of drums. Wherever Chinese communities are found throughout the world, the benevolent dragon is sure to follow, bringing its ancient cultural celebrations to cities and towns across North America.

This one quarter troy ounce pure silver matte proof boasts a legal tender denomination of 8 dollars (lucky eight!), a strict mintage limit and, perhaps best of all, an extremely low price point! Grab this dragon while you still can!
