Product Information

 

In 2012, the popular Australian Lunar Gold Proof Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Dragon, the fifth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. These superb proof quality releases are 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 99.99% Pure Gold

Struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, the 2012 releases are available as individual 1oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz coins, and a three-coin set comprising all three.

Chinese Dragon Reverse Design

The reverse of each coin depicts a traditional Chinese dragon, a long, scaled, serpentine creature with four legs, and a ‘pearl of wisdom’. 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, each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

Extremely Limited Mintages

No more than 3,000 1oz coins, 5,000 1/4oz coins, 5,000 1/10oz coins and 3,000 three-coin sets will be released.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin and set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Elegant Presentation

Australian Lunar gold proof coins are housed in elegant oval-shaped display cases featuring a granite effect base and a glossy timber-effect lid. Each case comes in an illustrated shipper.

Great Gift Ideas

As well as appealing to gold proof coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year ‘ruled’ by the Chinese lunar dragon.
