Queensland Mint is proud to present the 2022 1oz Lunar Dragon Silver Coin with Lion Privy from The Perth Mint. 

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1oz 999 Fine Silver
  • Australian Legal Tender with government backed purity guarantee and face value of $1
  • Protective acrylic capsule

Obverse: The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination. 
Reverse: Features a traditional Chinese dragon, a long, scaled, serpentine creature with four legs, and a "Pearl of Wisdom" and the Chinese character for "Dragon." The design also incorporates a lion privy mark.
