Back in 2017, Perth Mint issued a series of silver and gold bullion coins with Chinese cultural themes on the reverse fields. In particular, these coins were issued with important animals within Chinese culture. The primary figures to feature on the coins have been the Chinese dragon, phoenix, and tiger. In 2022, this series continues on as the Myths & Legends Series and features a powerful image of the Chinese dragon.

The Chinese dragon is a powerful symbol that has long been associated with kingdoms and emperors dating back to the Ancient Era in China. In fact, cultures around the world have varying mythologies surrounding dragons. For example, in Europe, dragons were often a harbinger of bad news and were seen more as a force of evil than a symbol of good luck.
There are other differences between depictions of dragons from around the world. Once again, the most obvious contrast comes when comparing images of dragons from European folklore to those of Chinese folklore. While European dragons were said to have four legs, breathe fire, and have wings, Chinese dragons can have as many as six legs, have no wings, and have a forked tongue and no ability to breathe fire.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2022 Australian Gold Chinese Myths & Legends Dragon Coins. This design was created for the Royal Mint in 2015 by Jody Clark and is the fifth-generation British design. However, it is the sixth-generation design to feature on Australian coins and is the first on an Australian coin since 1966 to include Her Majesty’s neckline in full and her shoulders.
A Chinese dragon features in the reverse design of 2022 1 oz Gold Chinese Myths & Legends Dragon Coins. In this design, the serpent-like dragon coils throughout the design field as one of its claws clutches the flaming pearl, a symbol of knowledge and wisdom.
