Celebrate the Year of the Dragon (2024) with this soon-to-be treasured keepsake! The sole mythical creature in the Chinese Zodiac, the indomitable Dragon is the symbol of great power and good fortune, of success and strength. People born in the Year of the Dragon are natural leaders known for their tenacity and courage, and under the auspicious influence of the Wood Dragon, 2024 brings the promise of progress, positivity and prosperity.

Design

The reverse design by Canadian artist Aries Cheung celebrates the Year of the Dragon (2024) through its playful depiction of the beloved Chinese Zodiac animal. Gracefully snaking across the sky, the Dragon extends its claws and reaches for two auspicious motifs: a branch covered in plum blossoms, the Chinese New Year flower symbolizing resilience, vitality and courage; and a celebratory lantern, which is decorated with the Chinese character “龍” (“Dragon”). The reverse also includes the word “CANADA”, the year “2024” and a face value of “8 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
