2024 2 oz Year of the Dragon Antiqued Silver Coin - Lunar Series III

The Australian Perth Mint presents its 3rd edition of the Lunar Series.

The Lunar Series comprises platinum, gold, and silver coins of varied sizes and finishes and showcases the Chinese Lunar Calendar as a standard motif.

Therefore, the series portrays a new Chinese Sign every year according to its annual interchange.

As 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, a unique depiction of this mythical creature features the reverse design of the Lunar Series III’s coins, including this 1 oz Antique Silver Coin.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine silver;
  • Antique finish;
  • Bears AUD 2 face value and legal tender status, backed by Australia;
  • A Perth Mint product;
  • Limited mintage of 1,888 units;
  • Housed in a customized presentation box with a COA;
  • 5th edition of the Lunar Series III;
  • The obverse showcases former Queen Elizabeth II;
  • The reverse depicts the Dragon, a Chinese Astrological sign that will lead 2024. 

The Design

The reverse design features a dragon in a frontal depiction, with water cascading from its mouth, a twisted body, and claws. As a backdrop, the image includes a village, a pagoda, a river, a bridge, Chinese boats, mountains, and clouds.

The only engraving on this side is a “P125,” which stands for the 125th anniversary of the Perth Mint.

The obverse design consists of Jody Clark’s effigy of the former Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s portrait is surrounded by “ELIZABETH II,” “1952-2022,” “AUSTRALIA,” “2 oz 9999 Ag,” “2024,” and “2 DOLLARS,” referring to the Monarch’s name and reigning period, the coin’s origin, weight, purity, metal content, year of issuance, and face value.

The darker tone and surface abrasions were intentionally made to give the coin the aspect of an antique coin.

The Chinese Lunar Calendar

Unlike the Gregorian Calendar, the Chinese Calendar is based on moon cycles. Each year corresponds to a different animal from the Zodiac.

2024 is the Year of Dragon. It is the fifth animal of the Zodiac and the only mythical creature. As the cycle lasts twelve years, previous Years of the Dragon were 2012, 2000, 1988, etc. 

According to Chinese culture, the ascending animal’s traits influence the personality of those born in the Year of the Dragon. Therefore, these people tend to be intelligent, creative, vigilant, and compassionate.
