Only 388 of these outstanding coins have been minted, so act now to secure this exclusive and prestigious release. Struck in high relief for extra impact, this gleaming gold dragon is a must for all collectors.

The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar dragon include 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012.  This rare release represents the perfect gift for anyone you know born in these auspicious years.

Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, no more than 388 of these 2012 Year of the Dragon 1oz Gold High Relief Proof Coins will be released as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of a dragon with a symbolic ‘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 2012 year-date and monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.

The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
