Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

No more than 388 of these coins will be issued worldwide.

The reverse of the coin 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 the 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. The coin is housed in a display case and beautifully illustrated shipper and is accompanied by numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
