Issued by the Perth Mint, the Year of the Dragon Silver Coin was introduced in 2012 as an addition to the Australian Lunar Series. The coin contains 10 oz of .999 silver and pays tribute to the dragon, officially observed within the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The dragon is a popular emblem in Chinese culture, a legendary creature in mythology and a symbol in the Chinese zodiac system.
With 2012 being the Year of the Dragon, the reverse of this 10 oz coin prominently displays a detailed design of a dragon. The dragon is traditionally a symbol of strength, power and good luck in addition to being used to represent historical, imperial dominance. The Chinese symbol for dragon along with the phrase “Year of the Dragon” is also engraved on the reverse.
The obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s profile design of Queen Elizabeth II. The words ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 10 DOLLARS, 10 oz. .999 SILVER and the date of mintage, 2012, are engraved on the outer rim of the coin.
