The Limited Edition 2018 1oz Dragon and Phoenix Gold Coin from Australia's Perth Mint is a must for serious collectors. Combining a stunning design inspired by Chinese mythology and culture with one troy ounce of 99.99% pure gold, the Gold 1oz Dragon and Phoenix will be the highlight of your collection. Plus, with a limited mintage of just 5,000 it's the ideal choice for investors too.
The dragon is revered in Chinese culture as a symbol of power, luck, strength and wealth and the mythical creature is often portrayed in pursuit of a flaming or shining pearl with its eyes wide and its mouth open. The pearl denotes enlightenment, spirituality and wisdom and is said to bring health, success and good fortune.
The Phoenix represents rebirth and renewal and it's often paired with the dragon in Chinese art and mythology. The dragon and phoenix together, as they are depicted on the Perth Mint's striking 2018 1oz Dragon and Phoenix gold coin, symbolise blissful relationships such as those between a husband and wife. The pairing is also a common metaphor for Yin and Yang – the male and female, the dark and light, the old and new and the two halves that make the whole.
The reverse of this magnificent gold coin portrays the dragon and phoenix in intricate detail as they pursue the flaming pearl against a background of swirling clouds. The 'P' mintmark of the Perth Mint can be seen towards the coin's right edge.
The obverse carries the famous Sir Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II along with the year of issue and the coin's denomination. The 2018 1oz Dragon and Phoenix gold coin is legal currency backed by the Government of Australia with a face value of $100 (AUS). However, its purity and its limited availability means that the true value of this exquisite gold coin far exceeds its face value.
