The Welsh Dragon 1oz world of Dragons Silver Bullion Round
Each The Welsh Dragon 1oz World of Dragons Silver Bullion Round comes in an individual protective Coin capsule
In ancient cultures, stories about heroes and monsters were an important part of everyday life. They helped people explain objects in the sky, make sense of weather events, or answer life’s big questions. Born around the fire and evolved through word of mouth, tales of these creatures and their supernatural powers were told and retold millions of times from person to person, from trade port to trade port, and from generation to generation – manifesting into a hundred different versions around the world.
The second release in this exciting 6-design series celebrates the Welsh dragon, one of the most powerful creatures in Welsh folklore. Y Ddraig Goch, or the “red dragon”, appeared on ancient British soldiers’ war flags as early as 300 AD. At Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, it stood guard as one of the Queen’s Beasts to signify Her Majesty’s direct descent from the Welsh House of Tudor. And it remains a symbol of the Welsh people’s fierce spirit on the national flag to this day.
Stories of the red dragon are abundant in Celtic lore. In Arthurian legend, the Y Draig Goch (symbolizing Wales) famously vanquishes a white dragon (symbolizing Britain) in a fierce, centuries-long battle. The red dragon has been celebrated as a symbol of the Welsh people’s relentless spirit ever since.
This limited edition 1 oz Silver Welsh Dragon round will be minted to demand until May 2019.
The obverse of the 1 oz Silver Welsh Dragon round features the fearsome red dragon in triumphant mid-roar after vanquishing the white dragon of legend. The inscription “The Welsh” also appears on the obverse.
The reverse depicts the powerful reptilian eye of the dragon. Its piercing gaze is surrounded by the inscriptions “World of Dragons” along with the metal content, weight, and purity.
