Brisbane Bullion presents the 1oz Lunar Dragon minted gold bullion investment bar by NTR. Whether as a gift, to celebrate a birthday or as an investment, this 1oz gold bar is sure to impress.
Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle.
Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.
In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The Dragon is the fifth sign of the Chinese Zodiac. The Dragon is a symbol of power and wealth and is believed to bring good fortune and prosperity. People born in the year of the dragon have a natural charisma, ambition and determination. They are natural organizers, known for their positive attitude and vibrant personalities.
This beautifully packaged 1oz gold minted bar would make a special gift for anyone born with the Chinese Lunar Zodiac sign of the Dragon, or for parents who welcomed a child born between 23 January 2012 to 9 February 2013.
