The coin's reverse portrays a dragon with water cascading from its mouth. The design's detailed background includes representations of a village, a pagoda, a 'moon' bridge, traditional Chinese boats, mountains, and swirling clouds. Also included on the reverse is a 'P125' mintmark signifying The Perth Mint's 125th anniversary.

The obverse of the coin bears the Jody Clark Memorial Obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented with the dates of her reign '1952-2022', the weight and fineness, the 2024 year-date and the monetary denomination.

PRESENTATION

The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the Dragon became an animal of the Chinese lunar calendar and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.

The shippers of future animals in the Lunar Series III will, when arrayed together, form a diorama depicting the ancient myth of The Great Race.
