Perth Mint Issues 2012 Year of the Dragon Gilded Silver Coin

2012 Year of the Dragon Gilded Silver CoinThe Perth Mint of Australia has issued the 2012 Year of the Dragon Gilded Silver Coin. This strike is composed of one ounce of 99.9% pure silver and features a reverse design including the mythical character of a dragon gilded in 24-karat gold.

In fact, the dragon design may be a familiar one to coin enthusiasts as it is the same one found on an associated 2012 Year of the Dragon Silver Bullion Coin. The bullion coin was released by the Perth Mint last month as part of its Australian Lunar Series II along with a gold bullion coin.

The silver strikes always prove popular with collectors, especially the gilded editions. Collectors and investors both value them not only for their composition of one ounce of .999 fine silver, but also for their unique imagery.

Shown on the reverse of the 2012 Dragon Coin is the mythical creature (gilded in 24-karat) along with a visual representation of the 'pearl of wisdom.' In addition the reverse also includes the Chinese character for 'dragon,' the Perth Mint's historic 'P' mintmark and the inscription of 'Year of the Dragon."

Each of these coins is considered legal tender of the country of Australia under the Australian Currency Act of 1965. They are given a token face value of 1 dollar which is indicated on the obverse of the coin along with Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Queen Elizabeth II of England. Additional obverse inscriptions include 'ELIZABETH II,' 'AUSTRALIA,' '2012' and '1 oz 999 SILVER.'

The Year of the Dragon Gilded Silver Coins are limited to a maximum mintage of only 50,000 and are available in a presentation case with a customized shipper or in a capsule only. Both come with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
