Perth Mint Coin Profiles – Australia 2019 Double Dragon 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Perth Mint Double Dragon 2019 Silver Bullion Coin

In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature embodying wealth, power, and good fortune.

Dragons are frequently depicted in pursuit of a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment. Representing the elusive nature of these qualities, the lustrous gem is often illustrated swirling through mist or cloud.

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

No more than 50,000 of the Double Dragon 1oz Silver Bullion Coin will be released.

Design

The coin’s reverse depicts two dragons chasing a single luminous pearl, surrounded by scrolling clouds. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness and the monetary denomination.

Designer(s):
