The dragon and other mythical beasts are often depicted in pursuit of the flaming pearl in Chinese art. The pearl itself represents wisdom and infinite knowledge. Depicting a creature in pursuit of this pearl is reflective of ones own pursuit of knowledge.
On the obverse of 2017 Australian Dragon and Phoenix Silver Coins is a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here in a 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley that featured as the fourth-generation design on British coins from 1998 to 2015 and as the fifth-generation design on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018/2019. The Queen wears the Royal Diadem crown, also known as the George IV State Diadem.
The reverse field of the 2017 Australian Dragon and Phoenix 1 oz Silver Coin features two critical mythical beasts from Chinese culture. On one side of the design field, a dragon serpent slithers along as a phoenix is featured on the other side of the design field pursuing the same pearl the dragon chases. The background field includes stylized clouds and there is a P mintmark from the Perth Mint on this field.
Dragons are revered in Chinese culture. Early emperors used the dragon as a symbol of strength and military power. Today, the dragon is seen as a symbol of fortune and good luck as well. The phoenix has long served as a symbol of rebirth as it rises from the ashes renewed in life.
