Auspicious mythical creature

Of all the creatures in Chinese culture, the mythical dragon is the most auspicious. Despite its fearsome appearance comprising a scaly body, eagle-like talons and horned head with demonic eyes, the Chinese dragon is revered as benevolent, noble and a potent symbol of abundance and good fortune.

High relief design

Struck in spectacular proof quality high relief on a concave table, the coin portrays a Chinese dragon grasping a pearl, representing energy, opportunity and immortality. The background is filled with stylised clouds, the dragon’s celestial realm. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation packaging

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic black case with a clear lid and a brightly illustrated shipper.
