Australian Lunar Series III 2024 Year of the Dragon 1oz Silver Trio
Each crafted from 1oz of pure silver, the three Australian Lunar coins in the 2024 Year of the Dragon Trio demonstrate exceptional numismatic finishes for which The Perth Mint is renowned.
- 99.99% pure silver
- Proof, coloured and gilded finishes
- Fifth design in Australian Lunar Series III
- Features the Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse
- Australian legal tender
Introduced in 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series features the 12 animals of the lunar zodiac. In 2024, the coins celebrate 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.
Proof, coloured and gilded finishes
Portraying a Chinese dragon and a flaming pearl, each coin features a different combination of surface treatments. A delicately frosted design on the proof release appears on an immaculately polished table; the coloured release depicts the dragon in vivid hues; the gilded coin highlights the dragon in 24-carat gold. 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 coins bear The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign. Also on the obverse is the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination, and year-date.
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the set is presented in a classic display case with a geometric design on its transparent lid. The case comes in an illustrated shipper featuring a dragon. When arrayed with other three-coin set shippers from the series, the resulting diorama depicts the legend of The Great Race, in which 12 animals successfully compete for a position in the lunar zodiac.
Australian Lunar Series III
Each Australian lunar series from The Perth Mint is based on the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. Coin collectors are besotted with each annual release, hence the longevity of the 12-year series.
Established in 1996, The Perth Mint was the first to release an Australian lunar coin program. Due to its success, it is now in its third series.
Made with the fine gold, silver and platinum in combination with intricate craftsmanship, these Australian lunar collector coins explore the ancient tradition and mythical folklore of the Chinese Great Race.
