Complementing the highly successful Australian Lunar Series II 2012 Year of the Dragon, The Perth Mint is thrilled to present this limited edition ten-coin set.
A real collector’s coup, the set is a wonderful gift for anyone born in the Chinese lunar years of 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012.
99.9% Pure Silver Coins
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.
Exciting Coloured Dragon Designs
As well as a coin with a traditional bullion finish, the set includes nine coloured editions on which the dragon is finished in either red, blue, brown, purple, silver, white, yellow, black or gold.
The reverse of each coin depicts a dragon with a representation of a ‘pearl of wisdom’. The Chinese character for ‘dragon’ and the inscription YEAR OF THE DRAGON also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Extremely Limited Mintage
No more than 2,500 coin sets will be released.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
The coins are housed in a prestigious red and black display case with a custom-designed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
