Canada Post - Thematic Collection #92 - Year of the Dragon - Stamp and Coin Set (2000)
The new millennium opens with the Year of the Dragon, a year associated with prosperity and good luck. Those born in this period (5 February, 2000 - 23 January, 2001) can expect to enjoy good luck, health, wealth and long life.
The dragon, the only one of the twelve animals that is purely legendary, has long been associated with China and its emperors. In the Orient, dragons represent divine power and are benevolent symbols of fortune, wisdom and hidden knowledge.
With these 2000 special edition stamps and this coin, Canada ushers in the Year of the Dragon - and all the exciting and positive changes it will bring.
