About the Series:

This great series created especially to celebrate the 2012 Year of the Dragon, features mythical dragons from around the world.

The three-headed dragon in Bulgarian, Russian, Ukrainian and Serbian lore is viewed as evil with few redeeming qualities, with its number of heads ranging from one to seven.  Like the Hydra in Greek mythology, legend has it that the dragon’s heads will regrow if cut off – unless the heads are cured by fire!

The dragon is a respected global symbol, known for its power to change the world and help people in need.

Others in the Series: Red Welsh Dragon, Chinese Dragon, St George and the Dragon, Three-Headed Dragon

Donation to UNICEF-Australia

This series was commissioned by Coin Club Australia who in the Spirit of the dragon helping those in need made a donation of $1.00 to UNICEF-Australia for each coin purchased in this program.
