You are bidding on One 2012 One Ounce Australian Lunar 99.9% Pure Silver BU Coin Series II “Year of the Dragon”  Blue/White Dragon Coin, which will come to you in its own Original Perth Mint Capsule. 


 COIN DESCRIPTION:


The Reverse of the Coin depicts a Long, White Scaled, Blue Serpentine Dragon, a symbol of Power, Strength, and Good Luck. The Reverse also includes a Depiction of a “Pearl of Wisdom. The Chinese character for “Dragon” and the inscription “Year of the Dragon” also appear in the design with the Perth Mint’s traditional “P” mintmark. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012-year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse. This Coin is Brilliant Uncirculated and comes in its Original Perth Mint Capsule.


This large, impressive coin represents a tremendous value, struck in 99.9% Pure Silver, and weighing One Troy Ounce. The Perth Mint's Lunar Zodiac Series II coins are huge, at more than 45 mm in diameter, nearly 2 inches across. This beauty made even more desirable by the Mint's execution of this intriguing ANAMAL motif in pure silver, artistically rendered in reverse proof finish with striking, vibrant hues.  

Australia’s Lunar series is among the most popular silver bullion coin programs today. Each year represents a different animal in the Chinese Zodiac, with 2012 represented by the Dragon, the fifth animal in the Chinese Zodiac. Each coin is 99.9% pure silver. The craftsmanship of the Lunar Coins Series, the popularity of the Chinese Zodiac, and the bullion prices at which these coins are generally offered have made the Perth Mint’s Lunar series highly desirable by investors and collectors.

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. One of five elements characterizes each animal: 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 the yin, which is a 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.

FYI:  This coin set is in mint condition, unopened, as the day it left the mint, current pictures do not often define the true Mint BU condition described; High Resolution reflects “Marks on the Plastic, and not the Coin.” The present item/items for sale, were photographed in order to give you the best representation currently offered ATT, more importantly, “To ensure you that what I describe is accurate, often better,” than my current photographic abilities.
