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.

Inspired by traditional Chinese folk art, the reverse design by Canadian artist Jai Paek celebrates the Year of the Wood Dragon (2024) through its whimsical depiction of a Dragon (“龍”). The courageous and clever Dragon bears a playful expression as it snakes across the coin, with its head facing West and its tail facing East. The lucky number seven (7), which is associated with harmony, is represented by the Dragon’s seven heart-shaped scales that symbolize good luck and prosperity. The reverse also includes the word “CANADA”, the year “2024” and a face value of “15 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.
