To celebrate the Lunar Year of the Dragon in 2012, the Government of the British Virgin Islands released a stunning Silver and Crystal coin.
The origin of the Chinese Lunar Calendar seems to come from the East Han Dynasty. At the time of its initiation, many of ancient China’s agricultural society were deemed to be illiterate and so astrologists established the 12 animal signs of the Zodiac as shorthand symbols of the 12 earthly branches – an ancient system of dividing the year into 12 months. It was some time later that the full horoscope, representing both men and women born in the same year and reputed to affect their personality and success, came into effect.
Those born in the Year of the Dragon are usually intelligent and eloquent, but they should be careful not to indulge too much in an argument. Celebrities born under this star sign include John Lennon, Prince Edward, Ringo Starr and Sigmund Freud.
These beautiful Silver and Crystal coin show the 12 animal signs of the Zodiac in the Silver surround and in the centre is a red crystal with a stunning Dragon etched into it.
