Story

Revered dragon

The dragon commands the highest respect in Chinese culture. For thousands of years it was associated with the emperor, symbolising wisdom, enlightenment, and benevolence. The dragon is also one of 12 animals featured in the ancient lunar calendar. Those born under the sign of the lunar dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.

Coloured design

The coin portrays a coloured Chinese dragon and a flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom. 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.
