The Perth Mint's 2017 Dragon and Phoenix gold coin and its silver counterpart were issued as exclusive standalone products to complement the year's Australian Bullion Coin Programme. It’s an inspired choice for collectors who want a unique centrepiece or for investors who are attracted by the coin's purity, relative rarity and superb design features.
Each of these magnificent 2017 Dragon and Phoenix coins is struck from .9999 pure gold. As you would expect from the Perth Mint, quality standards are high; the intricately detailed reverse design shows a dragon and a phoenix with the obligatory flaming pearl. Like all Australian legal currency, the coin's reverse bears the famous Sir Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth with its face value of $100 (AUS).
