These magnificent silver coloured coins celebrate the Year of the Dragon, the fifth of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

Those born under the sign of the lunar dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

Each coin’s reverse portrays a coloured Chinese dragon and a flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, the inscription’ DRAGON 2024’ and a ‘P125’ mintmark signifying the Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary.

The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark Memorial Obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented with the dates of her reign ‘1952-2022’, as well as the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.

Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
