The Perth Mint of Australia has started accepting orders for a special edition Dragons of Legend Special Coin. The coin is struck in 5 troy ounces of .999 silver and features the Chinese Dragon.
The regular Dragons of Legend series features five dragons from different mythologies across the world. These coins are struck in 1 troy ounce of silver with colored designs. The first two releases featuring the Red Welsh Dragon and the Chinese Dragon had a mintage limit of 5,000 each and quickly sold out on the Perth Mint’s website. The next releases within the regular series will feature the Saint George Dragon, Bulgarian Three-Headed Dragon, and European Green Dragon.
This special edition coin features the Chinese Dragon, and features two colored dragons on the reverse design with a representation of a pearl, signifying eternal wisdom. The design also includes a fish motif, representing abundance and harmony. The obverse features the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. These coins are issued as Tuvalu legal tender with a monetary denomination of “5 Dollars.”
Each coin has a diameter of 65.60 mm, thickness of 5.80 mm, and weight of 155.673 grams. The fineness is 99.9% with silver content of 5 troy ounces. The coins are housed in a black presentation case with illustrated shipper and numbered certificate of authenticity.
