2019 1 oz Silver Perth Dragon & Tiger Proof
This striking design pairing of the traditional Chinese dragon against a tiger in the eternal chase to obtain the coveted flaming pearl is remarkable! This Proof edition comes on the heels of the 2018 BU release of the same theme that was an immediate success. This absolutely stunning Proof edition will certainly be well-received!
Included with this Proof edition is an elegant flip-top Pert Mint presentation box, and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Both are enclosed in a distinctive, illustrated package.
The Dragon’s Eternal Chase
The obverse features the new, 6th generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II to be displayed on Australian coins. The new portrait is based on that designed by Jody Clark of the Royal Mint for 2016. It is distinctively different, however, in that it displays the Queen’s shoulders and full neckline. This is a very lovely and graceful pose. The wide rim-band includes the inscriptions, “ELIZABETH II . AUSTRALIA” at the top, and “1 Oz 9999 Ag . 2019 . 1 DOLLAR” at the bottom.
The reverse highlights a very active scene depicting the dragon’s unending circular chase in very fine detail. The ferocity displayed in the faces of each of these powerful creatures is incredible! The tiger is to the left, with it keen eyes fixed upon those of his opponent. His jaws are wide, exposing it’s razor sharp teeth. The dragon’s serpentine body writhes as it extends it’s sharp claws in the attempt to overcome this massive opponent and finally capture the pearl. The flaming pearl blazes between them in the center of the of the coin. The Perth mintmark “P” is displayed at the upper-right rim.
