2012 Australia 1/2 oz Silver Year of the Dragon BU

2012 Australia 1/2 oz Silver Year of the Dragon BU

Product Details

The 2012 Silver Lunar Year of the Dragon features a traditional Chinese dragon, a long, scaled, serpentine creature with four legs, with 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 Lunar 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.

                These coins are worth premium and have kept pace even with the drop in silver. If silver hits 60 or 70 dollars you might want to have 1/2 oz coins for a pop and a sandwich (inflation). :)

                              Beautiful coin. For some reason I like the 1/2 ounce better that the full ounce. Maybe the size is just right for this particular design ... I got many too many of these. Colorized one too :)
