In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature, a symbol of power, strength, wealth, and good fortune and it is often portrayed chasing a luminous or flaming pearl.
The flaming pearl is viewed as a metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and spiritual essence. It is also said to rid a person of their troubles, bringing career success as well as fortune and good health. Dragons are frequently depicted in pursuit of the flaming pearl, which is represented as swirling through mist, smoke and shadows.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
No more than 5,000 of the Dragon & Phoenix 2018 1oz Gold Bullion coin will be released.
The coin’s reverse depicts an exquisitely detailed representation of a dragon, a phoenix and a flaming pearl, with a stylised representation of clouds in the background. The design includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
