This is only found right now at APMEX. I could not pass this one up. The price jumped up $25.00 in one day
after I placed my order.

It's interesting that it has a €20 denomination and the text is French, but I couldn't see a country of origin. APMEX say it's made by the Paris Mint, but don't give a country either. A mystery.

On the box it came in it states. "Struck In France In The Art Workshops Of Monnaie de Paris"
That is all I can find about it.

Excellent acquisition @AVG. The intricate details of the dragon, calendar and related symbols of Chinese lore were beautifully executed.

Having just looked on the Monnaie de Paris site, this 2024 Year of the Dragon coin definitely came from their work shop.

It is Monnaie de Paris.  I think you can get them from Powercoin, but they're about 120 Euros. It's a lovely design and I'm sure it's terribly photogenic, but I do struggle with the notion of paying 500% premium on silver coins.

Maybe Silvertrader can get them in.
