The Perth Mint issued the 2012 Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins with a total of 10 gold coins for sale. Investors could choose between gold bullion versions of the coin that ran as large as 10 Kilos, 1 Kilo, and 10 oz or as small as 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz options. These were, of course, accompanied by the 1 oz and 2 oz coins.
All of the 2012 1/4 oz Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins in this listing are available to you with protective plastic flips to house the products. The Perth Mint declared a final mintage of 18,620 coins for the 1/4 oz Gold Lunar Dragon release. That made the 1/4 oz coin the middle choice for many investors, finishing below the 1 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/20 oz, and 1/2 oz coins, in order, but above the other larger coins in the series.
On the obverse of 2012 Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation British portrait of Her Majesty designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. The Perth Mint uses it as a fifth-generation design on Australian coins.
The reverse of 2012 1/4 oz Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins includes the design of a dragon. The serpent-like beast on this side of the coins winds its way across the design field as it pursues a flaming pearl featured on the right side of the design field. This face of the coin also includes a “P” mint mark from the Perth Mint.
Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia and was once part of the Royal Mint of England system on the continent along with the now-closed Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint.
