DID YOU KNOW?
- Years of the Dragon: According to the Chinese Zodiac, you’re a Dragon if you were born in 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012 or 2024. Already the most auspicious animal sign, Dragons can further boost their luck by sticking with the numbers 1, 6 and 7, or their lucky colours of gold, white and grey.
- Dragons are natural leaders and go-getters. Courageous and intelligent, Dragons are not afraid of challenges and are willing to take risks. The Dragon itself has long been a revered symbol of Chinese culture; it represents power, excellence and good luck.
- Wood dragons are quiet, creative thinkers. In Chinese astrology, every year in the 12-year cycle is ruled by a different Zodiac sign and each creature is associated with one of the five elements, meaning the Wood Dragon is only celebrated once every 60 years. While Dragons are known to be fierce, driven and loyal, the Wood element in 2024 tempers their fiery, energetic temperament. Wood Dragons are calmer and more introverted, creative and inquisitive—they’ll dive into any problem, and they usually come up with an innovative idea or solution.
The reverse design by artist Aries Cheung features a highly detailed depiction of the Chinese Zodiac’s most powerful animal sign, the Dragon, amid auspicious cherry blossoms and clouds. Facing the viewer, the Dragon offers the blessing of its magical powers, as it clutches the Dragon Pearl or Fire Ball representing wisdom and bearing the Chinese character “龍” (“Dragon”) in the Yan script calligraphy style. The reverse also includes the word “CANADA” and a face value of “250 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with a repeating scallop pattern. 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.
