Australian Lunar Series III 20224 Year of the Dragon 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin With Box


Mighty dragon

The dragon holds a unique place in the Chinese zodiac and folklore. For thousands of years, it was associated with the emperor and his descendants, symbolising wisdom, enlightenment, and benevolence. Said to control the elements, and thus provide rain for good harvests, the dragon was also associated with prosperity and good fortune. The only mythical creature to be represented in the lunar zodiac, the mighty dragon is said to bestow bravery, persistence, ambition and intelligence on those born under its influence.

Coloured dragon design

The coin portrays a coloured representation of a dragon with water cascading from its mouth, stylised waves, 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.

Memorial Obverse

The coin bears The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign. Also on the obverse is the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination, and year-date.

Presentation packaging

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is presented in a classic display case with a geometric design on its transparent lid. The case comes in an illustrated shipper featuring a dragon. When arrayed with other shippers from the series, the resulting diorama depicts the legend of The Great Race, in which 12 animals successfully compete for a position in the lunar zodiac.
