Brisbane ANDA coin show special

The 2012 Brisbane ANDA coin show special features the spectacular Year of the dragon 1oz silver coloured coin. Portraying this year’s design from the Australian lunar silver coin series II, this coin celebrates the dragon, the fifth of the twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. The coin is pad printed in purple, one of the nine colours featured on the nine dragon wall in China. In Chinese culture, people born in the year of the dragon – 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012 – are regarded as confident, enterprising, independent, self-assured, brave and passionate.

2012 year of the dragon design

The coin’s reverse depicts a purple dragon with yellow detailing and 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. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the denomination and the 2012 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse.
