2024 Australian Lunar Series III - Year of the Dragon Proof Silver Coloured Coin
Celebrating the fifth animal in the zodiac, this 1oz silver proof coloured coin is an impressive tribute to the Chinese lunar Year of the Dragon. Featuring a coloured design, the coin is struck to our celebrated proof standard combing a mirror-like polished background and coloured relief.
The coin’s reverse portrays a coloured representation of a dragon with water cascading from its mouth, stylised waves, and a flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024’ and a ‘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 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 zodiac and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
