This 1oz silver proof coin features a Chinese dragon in a unique rectangular format.


In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature, a symbol of power, strength, wealth, and good fortune, and it is often portrayed alongside a luminous or flaming pearl. Dragons are also believed to be the rulers of water and weather.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,888 of the Dragon 2018 1oz Silver Proof Rectangular Coin.
 
DESIGN

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, the 2018 year-date and the weight and fineness are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
