2012 was the Year of the Dragon on the Zodiac. There is no creature in Chinese mythology and culture more revered than the dragon. While other cultures viewed the dragon with fear, Chinese culture viewed the dragon as a life bringer and a symbol of power. The 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon coins featured distinct designs for the respective silver and gold coin designs.

With your purchase of 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon 1/4 oz Gold coins, you receive a coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Perth Mint. These coins are available individually inside of protective capsules. Like other weights in the series, the 1/4 oz gold coin in the Lunar Series II collection had an unlimited mintage. As long as demand supported it, the Perth Mint would strike the coins through the end of 2012.


The obverse field of 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon 1/4 oz Gold Coins includes an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. Her Majesty is shown here in the fifth-generation Australian design that was originally created for the Royal Mint of England in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. Featured on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018, this bust of the Queen shows her with the elegant Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head.


In the reverse design, the 2012 Australian Lunar Dragon 1/4 oz Gold Coin depicts a Chinese dragon in pursuit of the flaming pearl. This design is distinctive when compared to its silver counterpart. While the latter features the dragon pursuing the pearl in a circular pattern, the gold coin design shows the dragon in almost an S-pattern in the center of the coin slithering toward the flaming pearl. Inscriptions include the P mint mark of the Perth Mint, the Chinese symbol for a dragon, and Year of the Dragon.


The Lunar Series II collection offered various gold coin options for investors. Each coin design in the series was available in a BU option that included 10 Kilo, 1 Kilo, 10 oz, 2 oz, 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz options, ensuring that there was a coin for any gold buyer.
