The much anticipated Year of The Dragon commemoratives have begun to appear! Not to be outdone, the meticulous artisans at Pamp Suisse in Switzerland have captured their own silver dragons in this stunning Swiss silver rectangular ingot. Each is struck in high purity silver -something the Swiss are famous for.

The reverse of each ingot features the face of a dragon as he wraps his whole body around the bar. The obverse shows the dragon crushing the center of the ingot and displays the weight, metal fineness and serial number. Dragons are thought to bring good fortune, abundance and prosperity, which is certainly a "no brainer" when your buy them in 99.9% Swiss silver! Pamp Suisse is located at Castel San Pietro, Switzerland. It is completely independent of any government. They are so well respected, they are assigned as an 'Approved Good delivery Referee' to determine the quality of products by the London Bullion Market Association. You can't do better than Pamp Suisse!

Each ingot is securely sealed in a Pamp Suisse official Assay card which lists the matching serial number, fineness and weight.
