Coin Story

The 2012 Silver Lunar Year of the Dragon features a traditional Chinese dragon, a long, scaled, serpentine creature with four legs, and a "pearl of wisdom" and the Chinese character for "dragon." The Ian Rank-Broadley profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse. This large Silver coin comes in a plastic capsule.
In the Chinese Lunar Calendar, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. The dragon is known for its strength, beauty, and noble nature. These traits are flawlessly portrayed in the Perth Mint's 2012 Year of the Dragon coin. Not only is the dragon the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac, it is also one of the most popular.

Reverse Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a Chinese style Dragon with a pearl. The Dragon is beautifully designed, very detailed and finely engraved into the silver coin.

Obverse Design

Issued as Australian legal tender, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2012 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.


The Australian Lunar Series II - Year of the Dragon Typeset coins are housed in a contemporary red and black display case and illustrated shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
