2019 Dragon and Tiger 1oz .9999 Gold Bullion Coin
THE PERFECT BALANCE, DRAGON AND TIGER
Considered to be balancing forces in feng shui, the divine dragon and the earthly tiger are depicted on this exquisite gold coin chasing a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment. A manifestation of female or ‘yin’ energy, the tiger is a lucky animal associated with strength and bravery, while the dragon represents ‘yang’ (male) energy and is a symbol of wealth and fortune.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 2019 Dragon and Tiger 1oz Gold Coin.
The coin’s meticulously detailed reverse depicts representations of a dragon and a tiger in pursuit of a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment. Representing natural balance and interdependence in Chinese philosophy and feng shui, the dragon is ‘yang’ (male) energy and the tiger ‘yin’ (female).
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, 2019 year-date and the weight and fineness are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
Each gold bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
Established on 20 June 1899, two years before Australia’s Federation in 1901, The Perth Mint was the last of three Australian colonial branches of the United Kingdom’s Royal Mint (after the now-defunct Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint) intended to refine gold from the gold rushes and to mint gold sovereigns and half-sovereigns for the British Empire. Swan Bullion Company is proud to be an authorised distributor for The Perth Mint’s bullion and numismatic products.
