2019 Dragon 1oz .9999 Gold Bullion Rectangular Coin
DIVINE NEW RECTANGLE RELEASE
Following on from a popular first release in 2018, The Perth Mint’s second rectangular Dragon bullion coin has been launched with a fresh design celebrating oriental themes.
Struck in the shape of Perth Mint minted bars, the 99.99% gold coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 20,000 of the rectangular Dragon 2019 1oz Gold Bullion Coin.
The coin’s reverse depicts the highly revered Chinese dragon chasing a flaming pearl, a symbol of wisdom and enlightenment, among clouds.
The obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of His Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 2019 year-date, weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
This coin includes an authentication feature on the reverse in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Contained within one of the dragon’s claws, this letter is only detectable under a magnifying glass. This feature is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
Each individual rectangular coin is provided in a protective 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.
