2024 1 oz Platinum Year of the Dragon Coin - Lunar Series III 

The Chinese Lunar Year is a staple in the Perth’s Mint collection, releasing  new coins annually coinciding with the Chinese zodiac sign for the year. 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, and as usual, the mint has produced gold, silver, and platinum coins in a variety of sizes and finishes to celebrate the upcoming year.

Following the series' standards, the Platinum coin is made of the purest bullion, holds legal tender, and has a fantastic Dragon design on the reverse side.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains 1 oz of .9995 fine platinum;
  • Brilliant Uncirculated condition;
  • Bears a face value of $100 and legal tender status backed by the Australian Government;
  • A Perth Mint annual strike series;
  • Limited mintage of 5,000 pieces;
  • Former Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait is on the obverse;
  • Dragon as the reverse design.

The Design

The obverse of the coin holds the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II created by Jody Clark in her 1998 portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.  

The engravings around the crowned Queen inform Her Majesty’s name and reign, the coin’s weight, metal content, purity, origin, and face value through “ELIZABETH II,” “1952-2022,” “AUSTRALIA,” “1 oz 9995 Pt”, and “100 DOLLARS.”

The reverse design features the coin’s motif. Since 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, the Lunar Series III exhibits a unique depiction of the Dragon, along with its corresponding symbol in Chinese, the inscriptions “DRAGON 2024” and “P125” referring to the mint’s 125th anniversary.

The Chinese Calendar

The ancient Chinese calendar identifies years, months, and days according to astronomy, opposed to the Gregorian Calendar, setting the beginning of the new year with the new moon, typically happening in January. 

The Chinese Zodiac is composed of 12 animals, each one corresponding to an entire year. The animal’s traits dictate the year’s characteristics, as well as those born in those years.

The dragon is the fifth sign and the only mythical creature. It is a symbol of strength and good fortune, and those born in the Year of the Dragon are told to reflect those traits.
