Introduction

Some NGC certified coins in this set have a 2011 date on their labels. Production of the coins began in late 2011, with marketing of the sets beginning ahead of the year change to 2012, which is a common practice in all world mints. It was intended to commemorate the 2012 year of the dragon:

...the medal is issued in 2011 before the lunar year. It was on sell in china around Nov/2011. so if NGC label use the issue year, it will be 2011. - pandalover[1]
...the medal was designed for 2012 but they started producing them in 2011. NGC likes to put the year issued rather than the year of the subject. But all the 9 sons dragons were designed with 2012 in mind. - BoyBlueJay[2]
