Each 2012 1/10 oz Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coin is presented in protective plastic flips. This particular coin proved to be incredibly popular during the 2012 Gold Dragon release, surpassing the sales of the 1 oz gold coin, with a total of 33,059 specimens sold.
The obverse of the coin proudly displays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. Her Majesty graces the coin with a right-profile depiction, wearing the elegant Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
Turning to the reverse side, you’ll be captivated by the image of the Chinese dragon in pursuit of a flaming pearl. The mythical dragon, deeply rooted in Chinese folklore for thousands of years, is often depicted as a composite creature with the body of a snake, the scales of a fish, the talons of an eagle, and the antlers of a deer.
People born in the Year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese zodiac, are believed to inherit the dragon’s characteristics. They are considered to be confident, ambitious, charismatic, and natural-born leaders.
