The reverse features a serpentine Chinese dragon with outstretched claws, reaching toward a “pearl of wisdom.” The Mandarin character for “dragon” sits below, along with the inscription “YEAR OF THE DRAGON.”

About the Lunar 2 Series
The ancient Chinese calendar dates back to 2,600 BC and is reportedly the oldest chronological record in history. It is based on the appearance of the new moon. Twelve different animals represent each year in the 12-year moon cycle, including the Year of the Mouse, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.
The Perth Mint introduced the first Lunar series of bullion coins in 1999. They were so popular with collectors around the world that the mint added the Lunar 2 series in 2008. The Lunar 2 coins are released annually with a new design based on the Chinese zodiac.
Each gold coin will arrive in an original Perth Mint plastic capsule for protection.
