The Perth Mint Releases New Rectangular Bullion Coins
The Perth Mint is known for their innovation and ingenuity, and their newest release encompasses both. The recently released Gold and Silver Rectangular Dragon coins have a limited mintage of 500,000 for Silver and just 25,000 for Gold.
At first glance of the reverse, these coins look like your average bar, but when flipped to the obverse, it shows the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the denomination, year and purity. The obverse design features a Chinese-inspired dragon along with other traditional Chinese illustrations.
In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature. As a symbol of power, strength, wealth and good fortune, the dragon is often portrayed alongside a luminous or flaming pearl. Dragons are also believed to be the rulers of water and weather. These are a few reasons why the dragon is depicted throughout history in artwork from around the world.
The 1 oz Silver coin is minted in .9999 fine Silver and has a denomination of $1. The 1 oz Gold coin is minted in .9999 fine Gold and has a limited mintage of only 25,000 coins worldwide. This limited mintage release rivals other Perth Mint series like the Koala, Kookaburra and the newest series the Swan.
