The special colorization process used on this Silver coin creates a unique way to celebrate 2012 as the Year of the Dragon! The 2012 Silver Lunar Year of the Dragon colorized coin features a traditional Chinese dragon, 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.
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. This Silver coin is in its original plastic capsule from the Perth Mint.

Comments about 2012 1 oz Silver Year of the Dragon Yellow Colorized Coin:
This is a wonderful gift for my grand-daughter! I want to focus on quality, and teens are definitely hard to shop for. She does like to collect coins, but her collection space is limited. Just sending a store or visa gift card is so impersonal, too. This coin's colorization is bright and cheerful. The motif represents another culture's ancient perspective too. I hope in the next couple years I can find coins to match my 2 grandsons' Chinese Zodiac signs too, or there'll be jealousy! I love the size of this coin also. No squinting necessary!
