Each 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon 1/10 oz Gold Coin is meticulously preserved in protective plastic flips. This coin quickly became a favorite during the 2012 Gold Dragon release, surpassing the sales of the 1 oz gold coin, with a total of 33,059 specimens sold.


The obverse of the coin proudly displays a highly detailed bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, this portrayal captures Her Majesty in right-profile relief, wearing the elegant Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Inscriptions read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 15 DOLLARS, 2012, and 1/10 OZ 9999 GOLD.


On the reverse, you’ll find the enchanting image of the Chinese dragon in pursuit of a flaming pearl. With a history spanning thousands of years, the Chinese Dragon has captivated imaginations. Some interpretations depict it as a magnificent creature with the body of a snake, the scales of a fish, the talons of an eagle, and the antlers of a deer. Inscriptions include YEAR OF THE DRAGON, the P mint mark of Perth, and the Chinese symbol for the dragon.


In Chinese philosophy, the Dragon is associated with the element of water. Water is considered a symbol of wisdom, adaptability, and flexibility, reflecting the Dragon’s characteristics.
