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.
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.
