In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Dragon – 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012 – are regarded as confident, enterprising, independent, self-assured, brave and passionate.
The coin’s reverse depicts a red dragon with a representation of a pearl. The colour red represents success, good luck and prosperity. The Chinese character for ‘dragon’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Dragon’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse.
Just 1,000 of these coins will be released as Perth ANDA Coin Show Specials.
