The Chinese Dragon is considered the most powerful and divine creature in Chinese culture. It is seen as a symbol of good fortune, prosperity, and abundance. Though the dragon is prominent in traditional Chinese culture and folklore, there are different regional interpretations that have slight variations in their beliefs and customs related to the Chinese Dragon.
All of these 2012 1/10 oz Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins are available to with plastic flips. The 1/10 oz Gold Lunar Dragon was the best-selling coin in the 2012 Gold Dragon issue, surpassing the 1 oz gold coin’s sales of 30,000 coins with a total of 33,059 specimens in total.
On the obverse of 2012 Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins, you will find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This popular design was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse field of the 2012 1/10 oz Gold Lunar Dragon Coin features the image of the Chinese dragon as it pursues a flaming pearl. The Chinese Dragon is a mythical creature that has been part of Chinese folklore for thousands of years. It is depicted, in some renderings, 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.
