1oz Welsh dragon silver round World of dragons series
Dragons have been one of the world’s most popular mythological creatures through the ages. Almost every culture on earth has its own ancient dragon myth. And we are proud to bring them to life in our EXCLUSIVE WORLD OF DRAGONS series of 1 oz silver and copper rounds!
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. So hurry and add the second release in the series to your cart today, while they’re still available!
