The new Chinese Myths & Legends Series debuts in 2021 with the image of the Chinese dragon. The dragon has featured on countless collections from the Perth Mint in recent years. This new series can trace its roots to the 2017 introduction of the Dragon-and-Phoenix bullion coins. In this new collection, the dragon features on its own on the reverse.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 2021 Australian Silver Chinese Myths & Legends Dragon Coins. This sixth-generation effigy of the Queen was created by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint in 2015 and debuted on Perth Mint coinage in 2018. It is now the primary effigy of the Queen in use on Australian coinage and depicts the monarch at the age of 89.
A Chinese dragon is featured within its celestial realm on the reverse side of the 2021 1 oz Chinese Myths & Legends Dragon Coin. The Chinese dragon is also depicted as a serpent-like beast. In Chinese mythology, the beasts are associated with the clouds as the celestial world is considered the home of the dragon.
Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint was intended to serve as the third-and-final Royal Mint branch facility in Australia. Today, it is the oldest operating mint in Australia and is a state-owned entity of the government of Western Australia.
