Product Information

 

In 2012, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Dragon, the fifth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

This superb proof quality release is perfect for people born in ‘dragon’ years – 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012 – who are regarded as confident, enterprising, independent, self-assured, brave and passionate.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Chinese Dragon Reverse in Spectacular High Relief

The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

The reverse of the coin depicts a representation of a dragon with a symbolic pearl.  The Chinese character for ‘dragon’ and the inscription YEAR OF THE DRAGON also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

Extremely Limited Mintage

No more than 7,500 of these coins will be released.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Stylish Presentation

The coin is housed in a stylish black and red display case, with a striking illustrated shipper.

Great Gift Idea

As well as appealing to silver proof coin collectors, this outstanding release also makes a great gift for people born in any year ruled by the Chinese lunar dragon.
