These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Dragon, the fifth of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. Those born under the sign of the Chinese Lunar Dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every
12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.
No mintage limit applies to the 10oz, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, and 1/20oz coins. However, production will close at the end of 2024 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
*Please Note: The 10oz gold, 2oz gold, 1/2oz gold and 1/20oz gold coins will not be available at launch and cannot be sold. The Perth Mint will advise when these coins are available for sale.
The coin’s reverse portrays a dragon, waves, and stylised fog. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary.
The coin bears the Jody Clark Memorial Obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented with the dates of her reign ‘1952-2022’, as well as the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
The reverse of the 1oz, 2oz and 10oz coins includes a security feature in the form of a micro-engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
