2012 Silver Lunar Year of the Dragon: Silver Dragon Coins Part 8

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

The dragon is the most significant beast in the cultural history of China. It is revered as a mythical being that embodies power, wealth, and good fortune. Those in Chinese society who are believed to possess good fortune are often associated with the dragon, while emperors have longed used the dragon as a symbol of their own power and wealth.

I have long been attracted to anything dragon and thus collected things dragon in different forms, even before I started stacking. WHY? I was born on the Lunar Calendar Year of the FIRE DRAGON, the strongest and fiercest Dragon in mythical land!

This concludes my article series on the Silver Dragon modern bullion coins. If you are interested in having a closer look at each of the coins here are the links to the articles that I've previously published on Hive:


Sorry for taking so long, feeling very run down over the last few days.
Very nice choice of the Perth Dragon , especially Series 2 I like. But I only have the 1/2 oz version.
Always, with love my Sis!

The 2012 is slightly larger than the 2000, and with the capsule that came with 2012, it does not fit into a standard 1 oz size plastic tube.
I hope you are getting enough rest your days off, sis. Wishing you the best always!
Take care, my lovely sis @kerrislravenhill 🥰🌺🤙, lots of love💓💝 and a million and one Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋!

Very nice dragons @silversaver888! I am liking the series a lot! I think that 8 dragons is a nice number; what do you think? Thanks for sharing and I will watch for future posts. Take care sweet sis!💕🤗😘🌸

I love the Dragon coins and the different series Perth Mint has. They still have not released one of the dragons, but I am certainly looking forward to 2021 to continue. I got you, sis!
Have a lovely day, my sweetest sis, @elizabethbit. Take care 🥰🌺🤙, lots of hugs and love 🤗💕.

Right back atcha!😘🤗💕🌸

Very nice Perth Mint Dragons. I have a few in my collection. Not sure on the years or where I even put them. They must be in one of my random silver boxes. LOL.

On a side note did you see about the fake gold dragons from the Perth Mint?

So now, you are making me cry, my friend @vgholdingsllc 😢... you came to visit me!!!
And NO! WHAT??!!! Fake Perths? Must be from you know where... Do you know if they are fake gold, or is it fake randed Perth Mint but still gold of the same purity as Perth's?
Thanks for the info, my friend!
Take care 🥰🌺🤙

Hmm....The dragon Silver coins and bars are awesome to stack my friend. I would love to take a photo of at least three of the bars in a beautiful silver stack. the rounds would be awesome stacked up high, say five high!
Have an awesome night my friend!!😍😍😀

Got it! There are times that I bring these coins out from the box, like this occasion when I did the dragon series. And they sure look good stacked up!
Have a wonderful day, my friend @silvertopn, and take care🥰🌺🤙

Yes sometimes it's good to review what we have in our stack, to make sure we're on track to where our goals are! I think this is exactly what you were doing my friend!
Have a wonderful evening @silversaver888, Take care😍😍😀

I like all eight of them, I only have one dragon coin so far, the 2018 Two Dragons, but this inspires me to look into getting more.

The more i see and read about your coin collection the more i am falling in love with them love them dragon coins

I think that a silver bug has bit you. I came across stacking by accident while browsing through videos on YouTube. And the more I watched and read about stacking, the more I realize that it made sense to save value in precious metals. Siver and gold are two metals that have been used for centuries as a store of value, and for wealth building. Many cultures worldwide use gold jewelry as a hedge, to be liquidated in times of need. Men and women hold their wealth with them in gold. There is a saying, if you don't hold it, you do not owe it.
Have a wonderful day, @kohsamui99, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

You have certainly made all the right points they are both precious metals as you say and can also be something you can fall back on if in need of emergency cash , i do own some but no where as much as you would have.

You know i use to collect old , old coins from different countries i had some dating back a couple of hundred years or more one i remember was 400 years old and i was devastated when my home got broken into years ago and my coin collection was stolen who knows what they may have been worth today their were over 200 coins in my collection. 🤔

Have a lovely weekend @silversaver888 😊
