These stylish Pure Silver coins pay homage to the heraldic symbol of Wales: the Welsh dragon. More than the heraldic symbol that appears on the flag, the Red Dragon became the best way to symbolize Wales and all things Welsh, with recognition by society, the government and private institutions in the country.

The red dragon of Wales has been used since 655 AD, when some ancient Celtic leaders were viewed as the personification of dragons. Throughout history, it has been used to represent Celts in battles against invading Saxons, as well as by Britons against the Romans. It is believed that what is now the Welsh Red Dragon was the battle standard used by King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders as a way to strike fear into their opponents. The Tudor Monarchs of Welsh origin used the red dragon to support the English Crown's coat of arms.
In 1959 it was adopted in the national flag of Wales.
These 1 oz silver coins have a very limited mintage (possibly ensuring premium appreciation over time) and come in a brilliant uncirculated condition.
