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.

Presentation case

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin comes in a classic display case with a clear lid, and an illustrated shipper. When aligned with shippers from other coins in the Australian Lunar Series III, the resulting diorama depicts all 12 animals participating in the Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.
