The Perth Mints Lunar Series I coin collection launched a craze that has continued well into the 21st century. The Lunar Series I collection started in 1996 with the Year of the Rat and, like its successors, has followed the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. These coins are available in silver and gold and are exceptionally popular with both investors and collectors. Provident Metals currently has the 2000 Australian Lunar Dragon 1 oz Gold Coin available to you online in near-perfect condition.
When you purchase the 2000 Australian Lunar Dragon 1 oz Gold Coin available through this product listing, the item you receive has a Mint State 69 certification. Known as a near-perfect specimen, each coin showcases full, original mint luster and presents with no more than two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this grade level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines located outside the primary focal points of the coin.
The obverse face of 2000 Australian Lunar Dragon 1 oz Gold Coins bears the right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The fifth design to feature on Australian denominations, this image was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley and depicts the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This particular tiara was gifted to her grandmother, Mary of Teck, upon her marriage to King George V.
On the reverse field of the 2000 Australian Lunar Dragon 1 oz Gold Coin is an image of a Chinese dragon. In Chinese culture, dragons are often depicted as more of a serpent-like beast. The dragon has a long, slithering body with four or six legs, depending upon the cultural design, and no wings.
In the 21st century, the Perth Mint is up to three separate collections in total with lunar designs. The first included these 2000 Australian Lunar Dragon coins and was known as the Lunar Series I collection (1996-2007). The second collection was Lunar Series II (2008-2019) and the third is Lunar Series III which launched in 2020.
