Our Lunar New Year series continues with the newly issued Year of the Dragon Gold Aurum® bill for 2024. The Lunar New Year series honors the ancient Chinese lunar calendar, which dates back to the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – 9 A.D.). 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, perhaps one of Chinese culture’s most iconic mythical creatures. The Dragon symbolizes good fortune and authority. People born in the Year of the Dragon are said to be strong, kind-hearted, and intelligent.
The gold within each Year of the Dragon Aurum® bill is visible throughout from edge to edge and is fully recoverable using standard fire assay techniques. This Aurum® is a single-sided printed piece with the characteristic “dimensional gold” embossed effect on the bill’s reverse side where gold atoms have fallen on printed areas.
Learn more about the “dimensional gold” with our Aurum®.
The artwork for the latest issue in this series depicts a mythical dragon surrounded by motifs based on traditional Chinese patterning, lanterns, and abstract elements. The bill also features a bleeding heart flower, considered lucky for people born in the Year of the Dragon. Details are captured in vibrant red, traditionally representing luck, joy, vitality, and celebration. The Chinese words for strong and intelligent are positioned within the banner in the top left corner of the bill.
