Coin Information

The 2012 Year of the Dragon 1 oz Silver coins have been highly anticipated around the globe. With more than 2 million requests received by the Perth Mint, the total mintage of only 300,000 coins has made the 2012 Silver Dragon even harder to find.

In the Chinese Lunar Calendar, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. The dragon is known for its strength, beauty, and noble nature. These traits are flawlessly portrayed in the Perth Mint's 2012 Year of the Dragon coin. Not only is the dragon the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac, it is also one of the most popular. This Silver coin is in its original plastic capsule from the Perth Mint.

Chinese Lunar Calendar

The 12-year Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back to before 2600 BC. The Lunar Calendar is imbued with symbolism and mysticism. Each year of the Lunar Calendar represents an animal: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each animal is characterized by one of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Combined, each element is associated with each animal once every 60 years. According to Chinese tradition, each animal and element has a marked influence on the personality of those born under its sign. The element associated with the 2012 Dragon is Water.

According to Chinese mythology, the Dragon is yang and complements a yin fenguang (Chinese phoenix).

While China officially uses the Gregorian calendar, or Western calendar, the Lunar Calendar is still used for determining festivals.

Some other adjectives associated with people born under the dragon sign include confident, enterprising, independent, self-assured, brave and passionate.

Silver Coins added to Lunar Series in 1999

The Perth Mint originally began the Lunar series in just gold in 1996. In 1999, the mint added silver coins. Over time, the mint added additional sizes to each series as popularity for the coins grew.

The Perth Mint’s Lunar series is now in its second series. The 2000 one-ounce Year of the Dragon silver bullion coin is part of series 1. The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series 1 ended in 2007 with the issuance of the Year of the Pig coins.
