2012 Silver Luna Year of the Dragon features a traditional
Chinese dragon, a long, scaled, serpentine creature with
four legs, and a "pearl of wisdom" and the Chinese
character for "dragon."
The Ian Rank- Broadley
likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary
denomination are shown on the obverse. This
coin comes in a plastic capsule.
In the Chinese Luna Calendar, 2012 is the Year of the
Dragon. The dragon is known for its strength, beauty, and
noble nature. These traits are flawlessly portrayed in the
Perth Mint's 2012 Year of the Dragon coin.
Not only is the dragon the only mythical creature in the
Chinese zodiac, it is also one of the most popular.
