We are very pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated 2012 Year of the Dragon Silver Bullion two-ounce coin from our friends “down under.” This is the newest issue of this extremely fine silver coin produced by the world renowned Perth Mint of Australia. The 2012 Year of the Dragon silver coin is the second in the Australian Lunar Series. Each 2 oz Silver Dragon is struck with 99.99% pure silver bullion and will arrive to you in mint state condition! This coin in the Lunar Series is designed around the Chinese Zodiac, and the 2012 edition beautifully depicts the Dragon–the fifth animal in the Chinese zodiac. The mighty dragon symbolized power and nobility in ancient China, and today it also symbolizes success and happiness. Each 2012 Silver Dragon coin has been exquisitely crafted by the Perth Mint’s finest artisans, capturing the dragon’s spirit in stunning detail.
2 oz Australian 2012 Year of the Dragon Silver Bullion Coins are the latest in a tradition that began in 1999 when the first Australian Lunar series debuted. These coins were so popular with collectors and investors around the world, that In 2008, the Perth Mint added the Lunar II series to which the Year of the Dragon coins belong. Their popularity might in part be explained by each year’s new design. The obverse of each coin features the noble Ian Rank-Broadley profile of Queen Elizabeth II, per tradition. The obverse also includes the inscriptions of “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA,” “2012,” and “999 SILVER” with its weight and face value. It is the reverse design, however, that makes these handsome coins truly special. The depiction of the dragon manages the remarkable feat of being both whimsical and majestic in its design as it faces the viewer with a curling mustache and claws outstretched. It’s serpentine body wraps around the reverse side, filling the entire field with its intricate scales. The result is a very striking design that is sure to please collectors. The dragon is joined by the inscription “Year of the Dragon” on the reverse. The 2012 Year of the Dragon silvers are issued in seven different sizes including 10 kilo, 1 kilo, 10 ounce, 5 ounce, 2 ounce, 1 ounce and 1/2 ounce in denominations of $300, $30, $10, $8, $2, $1 and fifty cents, respectively.
