Chinese New Year is an important celebration and a time for giving. A perfect New Year gift, this vividly coloured coin combines two traditional symbols of good fortune in one image – a red dragon in the shape of a Chinese knot. The dragon is a well reconigsed symbol of wealth, strength and power. Knots have been used for centuries as good luck charms and continue to be widely used today for decorative purposes. The coin’s reverse also features lanterns, one of the most popular decorations at Chinese New Year, a temple, the Chinese characters for ‘Happy New Year’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
