2024 1 oz Year of the Dragon Colored Proof Silver Coin - Lunar Series III

Colored silver coins are becoming more common in the numismatic market. Renowned refineries, like the Perth Mint, include a colored coin to enhance their collections.

The Lunar Series usually features a limited edition of colored samples among its silver coins. And this year, the Year of the Dragon Coins struck a restricted 7,500-unit edition of proof-colored coins, serialized and exclusively housed in an alluring display case.

For enthusiasts who appreciate exclusive pieces, the 1 oz Year of the Dragon Colored Proof Silver Coin from the Australian Perth Mint may be an incredible purchase. Now available to you online from SD Bullion.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine silver;
  • Proof Colored Coin;
  • A Perth Mint limited to 7,500 units;
  • 5th edition of the Lunar Series III;
  • Holds a $1 face value and legal tender status;
  • The monochromatic obverse features Queen Elizabeth II;
  • Dragon unique colored reverse design. 

The Design

The exclusive design given to the silver coins of the series got terrific colors in this limited strike.

The Dragon, depicted in a frontal close-up, has yellow and blue tones all over its twisted body and claws. The water cascading from its mouth and the pearl, representing wisdom, got different tones of blue to stand out from the other tones.

The coin’s background and further details remain silver. The engravings beneath the Dragon correspond to its Chinese character to “Dragon”, the inscription “DRAGON 2024” to the coin’s name and mintage, and a “P125” stands for the 125th anniversary of the Perth Mint.

The obverse differs from the reverse for being exclusively monochromatic. It showcases Jody Clark’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, wearing the Diadem State Crown.

The image is surrounded by “ELIZABETH II,” “1952-2022,” “AUSTRALIA,” “1 oz 9999 Ag,” and “1 DOLLAR,” referring to the Queen’s name and reigning period, the coin’s origin, weight, fineness, metal content, and face value.

Because it is a proof coin, its surface exhibits a mirror-like luster, making an incredible contrast with the colored obverse design on the obverse and the matte images imprinted on the reverse side.

The Dragon in the Chinese Culture

The Dragon has long been associated with the emperor and its lineage. It is a symbol of wisdom, enlightenment, strength, and command.

Therefore, it is a powerful sign of abundance, wealth, and good fortune. And it is the fifth animal from the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Each Year of the Dragon is expected to attract the symbolism behind the creature’s myth and influence its year’s fortune.

Those born under the sign of the Chinese Lunar Dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, and every 12th preceding year are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.
