2020 Australia Double Dragon 1oz .9999 Gold Bullion Coin
DIVINE MYTHICAL CREATURE IN GOLD
An ancient symbol of power, fortune and wealth, the dragon is one of the most revered creatures in oriental cultures. Believed to hold dominion over the divine realm, these mythical animals are traditionally portrayed among clouds in pursuit of a spiritual orb known as a flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment.
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 2020 Double Dragon 1oz Gold Coin.
Struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coin’s reverse portrays two dragons chasing a single flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment, against a background of stylised clouds. Celebrated in classical Chinese art, the double dragon motif represents longevity, good fortune and auspiciousness, and is often featured in traditional New Year dragon dances.

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.
