Lunar Series collections have been available from Perth Mint since 1996. The original Lunar Series I program launched with a limited number of gold weights and no silver coins. By 1999, the Lunar Series I program included a range of both gold and silver coins. The entire Lunar Series II program, which ran from 2008 to 2019, came with the same range of gold and silver coins.
The introduction of the Lunar Series III program in 2020 marked the third iteration of lunar-themed designs from Perth. This new collection also brought with it the first-ever platinum coin in the series. While the gold and silver coins have different images of the 12 creatures from the Zodiac, the platinum coins share the gold design.
In the obverse design of the 2024 1/20 oz Gold Lunar Dragon, Perth Mint continues with the use of a portrait of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The late Queen is shown here in right-profile relief at the age of 89 as she wears the George IV State Diadem on her head.
For the reverse design of 2024 Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins, you will find an image of the Chinese dragon. The Chinese dragon has been a prominent subject in various forms of traditional Chinese art, including calligraphy, painting, sculpture, and ceramics. These artistic representations often showcase the dragon’s majestic and auspicious qualities.
These 2024 1/20 oz Australian Gold Lunar Dragon Coins are available to purchase with individual capsules for each coin. Multiples of 20 are sealed together in a roll with each coin encapsulated inside. All coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and feature a reverse mint mark of P125 honoring the 125th anniversary of Perth Mint’s founding in 1899.
