These magnificent 2024 1 oz Gold Bullion coins from The Perth Mint celebrate the Year of the Dragon, the fifth of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. The dragon is known to be one of the most opportune and powerful signs in the Chinese zodiac. It symbolises strength, success, and good fortune. Chinese astrology describes people born in the years of the dragon, such as 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, and every 12th year before that as confident, ambitious, charismatic, and intelligent.

To outsiders, the figure of a dragon could seem chaotic and overpowering, but in reality, this hides the Dragon’s symbol of strength, confidence and fortune. A dragon should always therefore be viewed as a powerful yet in control figure.
On the reverse, one can admire the artful depiction of waves and stylised fog that envelop the magnificent dragon. Alongside it is the Chinese symbol representing this mythical creature, as well as the 125th-anniversary mintmark, celebrating the Perth Mint's long-standing tradition. Furthermore, the iconic effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, commemorating her enduring reign, graces this year's lunar edition on the coins obverse, underscoring the it's fineness, purity & denomination.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
