In Chinese culture, the dragon is a creature with many special traits attributed to it. Throughout history, Chinese emperors have aligned themselves with the cultural legacy of the dragon as a symbol for military power and strength. Additionally, the dragon is viewed as a symbol of good luck and is said to have the ability to alter the weather and control rains.
In fact, it is said that the great rivers of China were actually formed when dragons came down from the heavens and used their bodies to contribute to the founding waters of the rivers. Whatever the reality of dragons, the creatures remain a vital symbol in Chinese culture in the 21st century and are popularly featured on gold and silver bullion coin collections.
On the reverse of all 2019 1 oz Australian Rectangular Gold Dragon Coins is the image of a dragon as it slithers along the face of the coin. The dragon design follows traditional Chinese depictions of the beast as a serpent-like creature with four legs, no wings, and a scaly body. The dragon here is stylized with a background of clouds and is shown in pursuit of the flaming pearl, a symbol of infinite wisdom.
The obverse of 2019 Australian Rectangular Gold Dragon Coins features a new effigy of Queen for the first time in the short existence of the coins. Most 2019 bullion issues from the Perth Mint now use Jody Clarks fifth-generation portrait created in 2015 for the Royal Mint of England. This right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is the sixth to feature on Australian coins during her reign.
These 2019 1 oz Australian Rectangular Gold Dragon coins are just the second-ever issue of rectangular bullion coins from the Perth Mint and come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The gold coins in the collection are available only in individual protective packaging.
