The dragon is one of the few mythical beasts in this world to be viewed in a completely different light by competing cultures. While many European nations and kingdoms viewed the dragon as a bringer of death and destruction, Asian cultures have long viewed the dragon as a symbol of wealth and good luck.

The dragon is central to Chinese culture and history. In the time of the Jade Emperor, it is said that four dragons defied the Emperor in providing the people with water by gulping up ocean water and dropping it into clouds to fall as rain for the people on Earth. The dragons drew the ire of the Jade Emperor for this move and eventually were trapped to the land, forming the four major rivers of China.
On the obverse side of these 2019 2 oz Proof Australian Silver Double Dragon Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth-generation design for Australian coins and debuted from the Perth Mint on 2019 dated coins. Created by Jody Clark, this right-profile portrait differs from his design for Royal Mint of England coins by including the Queen’s neckline and shoulders.
The reverse of 2019 2 oz Proof Australian Silver Double Dragon Coins features an ornate design field with two dragons slithering along the outer edges. The two beasts are in pursuit of the flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom and knowledge, that is located in the center of the design field.
Each of these 2 oz silver coins from the Perth Mint is struck in high relief. A common high-relief strike involves striking a design onto a coin’s surface several times under immense pressure to create greater 3D visuals. As proof coins, these specimens have frosted designs with mirrored backgrounds.
