2012 Australia 5 oz Silver Year of the Dragon BU

Product Details

Handsome Lunar Silver!
The 2012 Silver Lunar 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 effigy 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.

Great coin!

I bought this coin for a family member that was born in 2012. I thought it would be a nice way to start a collection for this person.

Beautiful Huge Coin

By  BigZ7337

I picked up this coin because I really loved the design, and it looks even better in person. I'm sure all of the versions of the Perth Year of the Dragon look great, but in a 5 ozt size it's gorgeous and huge. The premium is a little high, but to me it's definitely worth it.

Beautiful Coin

By  Ninja One

from Boulder, CO


I purchased one of these as a present for my Father for his birthday; he was born in the year of the Dragon. I also thought, might as well get two and add one to my own silver collection at the same time. I am really glad that I did, they are beautiful coins, the nicest I have ever seen! The dragon, pearl and profile of Elizabeth are mirror finished and really nice.Also, the overall look and feel of the coin is fantastic.

Classic Chinese Dragon

By  Nitram of the NW

from Puyallup WA


I have always enjoyed this classic dragon design. The dragon with the pearl of wisdom within his grasp. Beautifully executed. The contrast on this coin makes it one of my favorite Perth Mint designs. Sorry I didn't get the 10 oz version when they were available. So glad I have two of these treasures.


from WA


Great detail and design on this coin. It has a good heavy feel in your hand as well. The Perth Mint came out with the final declared mintage numbers and only 31,664 of these were minted.


from FL


What an Awesome coin, truly a fine work of art and a great piece to add to any coin collection.
