2024 $1 Year of the Dragon Quadrant 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Four-Coin Set.

The Quadrant Dragon set consists of four coins that each comprise one quarter of a circle. When arranged together the coins form a circle with a square in the centre reminiscent of the first currency of the Chinese empire. These 'ban liang' coins were first case during the Qin Dynasty around 200BCE.

The dragon commands the highest respect in Chinese culture. For thousands of years, it was associated with the emperor and his descendants, symbolising wisdom, enlightenment, and benevolence. The dragon is also one of the 12 animals featured in the ancient lunar calendar. Those born under the sign of the lunar dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful and charismatic.
