The new year heralds the Year of the Dragon. The Dragon is most compatible with the Monkey and the Rat and is the opposite of the Dog. The dragon is surrounded by five lucky interlocking rings that symbolize all five elements in Chinese cosmology: earth, wood, fire, water and metal. The five rings are also associated with the Emperor of China -- in caching, it's good to be the Emperor! This year's Dragon is a Water Dragon, so the background of the five rings is patterned with swirls and eddies. This is the fourth geocoin of the Cache Addict Chinese Zodiac series, joining the Years of the Ox, Tiger, and Rabbit geocoins, and is 3D on both sides with soft enamel and recessed texture.
