1oz Gold Coin 2022 Dragon - Perth Mint

Traditionally regarded as the embodiment of the Emperor, the Chinese dragon is admired as benevolent, noble and a potent symbol of abundance and good fortune. In appearance it is serpentine shaped with the scales of a fish, has eagle like talons and a horned head possessing demonic eyes. Since ancient times, it has often been portrayed with a pearl – a sought after treasure associated with energy, opportunity and immortality.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and has a mintage of 5,000.

The coin's reverse design portrays a powerful and wise Chinese dragon clasping a pearl in one of its claws. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark,the artistry includes representations of clouds, denoting the dragon’s celestial realm.

The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2022 year-date,the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.

The Dragon 2022 1oz Gold Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.

Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.

The Perth Mint is Australia’s leading precious metal refiner. Backed by the Western Australian Government, The Perth Mint has produced the official bullion coin program since 1987. The Perth Mint also produces a large range of high quality gold and silver bars. All Perth Mint gold and silver products are refined to 99.99% purity. Ainslie Bullion is a Primary Bullion Distributor for Perth Mint.

Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectible” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectible and need special storage. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event.
