Description of obverse and reverse The reverse of the Australian Lunar Year of the Dragon coin depicts a representation of a Chinese dragon gilded in 24-carat gold to enhance its intricate details. The design also includes a symbolic ‘pearl of wisdom’, the Chinese character for ‘dragon’ and the inscription ’Year of the Dragon’. The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark is also featured in the design. Issued as Australian legal tender, the obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, bordered by the inscriptions ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, the monetary denomination, the 2012 year-date, and the weight and purity of the coin.
A brief annotation In 2012, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned annual Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series celebrated the Year of the Dragon. To capture the passion and bravery of the legendary creature, inspiration was drawn from the Nine Dragon Wall in Beijing China. The richness of the design is captured in meticulously applied gilding.

Очень было бы символично присвоить этой монеты номинацию «Лучшая монета года». Из этой серии есть тигр.
