If I received that many silver wet kisses on the outer box, I'd get flimsy in the knees.

It looks utterly luscious  @Admin , and mine is on its way.  2024 5 oz Year of the Dragon 1f63b  2024 5 oz Year of the Dragon 1f63b  2024 5 oz Year of the Dragon 1f63b
I believe the Chinese script means 'Dragon', which would make sense. It was really exciting* to see the detail up close, and Downies really are producing some wonderful things now. I certainly won't be flipping mine.

*Yes, I do lead a quiet life.

My Dragons have arrived (there are two on the coin, don't worry I didn't buy two) and I am blown away by the coin. It is utterly superb. It is a shame about the cheap cardboard box, although the holographic effect is good, but everything else about the presentation is first class. It really is a case of spoiling the ship for the sake of a ha'p'orth of tar - fortunately, the important bits are spot on.

I believe they had a issue where the boxes might have been damaged so they thought on their feet. Not great but at least the wooden box is protected.

I read about the term's confusing meaning and interpretations in both England and it's 13 Colonies.

Regarding the development of plantations, the term was used in advertisements to properly start and maintain a plantation. An example was how to prevent the greatest inconveniences, by their proceedings in Virginia.

In England, it was mainly referred to as both shipbuilding and to sheep. I learn a lot here and I appreciate this old term you brought up.
