2020 Dragon 1oz .9999 Silver Proof Rectangular Coin
The auspiciousness of the dragon in oriental culture cannot be understated, which is why The Perth Mint offers annual tributes to this divine mythical creature in an exclusive series of rectangle-shaped coins.
Dramatic Dragon Design
The reverse of this year’s release portrays a dramatic representation of two Chinese dragons with large-eyes, horns, fish scales and sharp claws. The serpentine mythical creatures are pursuing a mystical flaming pearl, an ancient metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and truth. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appears on the reverse.
Latex Presentation Case
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin comes in presentation packaging comprising a contemporary latex case that displays both its reverse and obverse, and a stylish shipper.

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.
