2024 Australian Lunar Dragon Coins
As we step into the lunar year of 2024, The Perth Mint takes centre stage with the release of the 1oz Gold & Silver Australian Dragon Lunar Coins, both showcasing the mythical and powerful creature of the Chinese zodiac – the Dragon.
In this article, we delve into the mythical symbol of the lunar dragon. We’ll explore the different coin designs for 2024.
The Lunar Dragon
In Chinese astrology, the Dragon holds a special place as the only mythical creature in the 12-year cycle.
Representing health, strength, good luck, and the male element of Yang. The Dragon is believed to impart these qualities to individuals born in the years associated with this majestic creature – 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, and, of course, 2024.
Its mythical nature adds a layer of uniqueness to the Lunar Dragon, making it a fascinating addition to a collection.
Silver Australian Dragon Lunar Coin Design
The 2024 1oz Silver Australian Dragon Lunar Coin features a captivating design that tells a story of the dragon’s power and dynamism.
The coin features the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024,’ the Chinese character for ‘DRAGON,’ and The Perth Mint’s iconic ‘P’ mintmark with a special 125 suffix, marking the mint’s anniversary.
The image depicts a sinuous dragon breathing fire down onto a body of water. This symbolises the untamed power of this mythical being.
Gold Australian Dragon Lunar Coin Design
The 1oz Gold Australian Dragon Lunar Coin mirrors the design elements of its silver counterpart, capturing the essence of the mythical dragon’s power and presence but of a side profile.
The inscription ‘DRAGON 2024,’ the Chinese character for ‘DRAGON,’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark with the 125 suffix celebrate the mint’s long-standing tradition and mark this special year.
The Perth Mint’s Lunar Collection
These coins are part of the third series of the Australian Lunar coins. They have been captivating collectors for 26 years.
