Story

Successful dragon

Introduced in 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series features the 12 animals of the lunar zodiac. This 2024 release celebrates the dragon, whose rule over every fifth year in the 12-year lunar cycle is said to bestow bravery, wisdom, ambition, and success on people born under its influence.

Gilded design

The coin portrays a dragon which has been gilded in 24-carat gold. Included in the design is the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024’, the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, and a ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary in 2024.
