2021 $2 Chinese Legends - Dragon High Relief 2oz Silver Proof
Perennially popular, dragons have appeared on currency for thousands of years! Whether it be the Chinese Dragon, Welsh Dragon, Celtic Dragon, or even the famous St George & Dragon gold sovereign design, this mythical beast continues to appear regularly. Following that lead, The Perth Mint has created this Australian legal tender collector coin, featuring a brilliant Chinese dragon design. Depicting a powerful and wise Chinese dragon, clasping a pearl in one of its claws, the design also includes representations of clouds, the dragon’s celestial realm. Struck on extra fat blanks, to allow for higher design relief, each two ounce, 99.99% pure silver dragon is limited to a tiny mintage - just 1,000 will be issued.
