The Australian Lunar Series II program at Perth Mint was launched in 2008. The second collection of lunar-themed coinage from the mint, the Year of the Dragon marked the fifth year in the cycle and delivered two distinct images of the mythical Chinese dragon for the reverse of the coins. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon 1/2 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The Lunar Series II collection was introduced in 2008 by Perth Mint. The series offered 12 fresh designs featuring the animals from the Zodiac and was the first one to run the full 12-year cycle with both gold and silver options. The Lunar Series II program also delivered more weights for numismatists and investors.
On the obverse design of the 2012 Lunar Dragon 1/2 oz Silver Coin, Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This effigy is the fourth-generation design by Ian Rank-Broadley that the Perth Mint chose to use. Inscriptions read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 1/2 OZ 999 SILVER, 2012, and 50 CENTS.
The reverse of the 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon Coins showcases China’s most revered mythical creature. Representing power and majesty, the Chinese dragon is depicted on this coin as chasing a flaming pearl. Inscriptions here include YEAR OF THE DRAGON, the Chinese symbol for a dragon, and the P mint mark of Perth Mint.
