1 oz Copper World of Dragons Series The Indian Round
On the obverse face, 1 oz Copper World of Dragons The Indian Rounds feature a traditional Eastern depiction of the dragon. Cultures across the Indian Subcontinent and Asia often depicted dragons as snake-like creatures, as opposed to the flying beasts of European cultures. This long, powerful dragon guards the Taj Mahal in this design. The Taj Mahal was built between 1632 and 1653 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for Mumtaz Mahal, his favorite wife.
The reverse side of Copper World of Dragons The Indian Round includes a common design element used on all releases in the series. This side includes the haunting gaze of a dragon eye. You can only see the one eye as it gazes directly at you with its scaled reptilian skin. Inscriptions on this side identify the series and the weight, purity, and metal content of the round.
The World of Dragons The Indian Round release is the fifth in the World of Dragons Series. The series launched with The Aztec design featuring Quetzalcoatl from Aztec mythology. Subsequent releases include The Welsh, The Chinese, and The Norse dragon releases identifying different beasts from other cultures around the world. Releases in this series are available for three months of production and then minting halts, creating a relatively limited availability.
