Coin Story

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.
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.

Reverse Design

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.

Obverse Design

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.

Packaging

The Australian Lunar Series II 2012 - Year of the Dragon High Relief coin is housed in a stylish black and red display case, with a striking illustrated shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
