2019 2 oz Silver Perth Double Dragon High Relief Proof
Perth Mint is very pleased to present this 2 oz double-thickness, high relief proof edition of the earlier released 2019 1 oz Silver Perth Double Dragon. The double dragon is the third annual release of Perth Mint’s very popular Dragon series, pairing a dragon against a competing creature. Each release depicts both creatures attempting to capture the prize of a single flaming pearl. This stunning new 2019 2 oz Silver Perth Double Dragon High Relief Proof takes this eternal struggle to a completely new level. Although this new edition features the same pairing of two traditional Chinese dragons against each other, the presentation is so much more intense!
Competing for the Prize ‑ Dragon & Dragon
The obverse displays the 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. The band at the rim includes the inscriptions, “ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA” at the top, and ” 2 oz 9999 Ag 2019 2 DOLLARS” at the bottom.
The reverse features with incredibly fine detail and high relief, a very active scene depicting two dragon’s locked in an unending circular chase. The focus and intensity displayed in the faces of each of these powerful creatures is awesome! Each of the dragons’ keen eyes are fixed upon the single flaming pearl that separates them.
Dragon against dragon fully engaged, not in battle, but in the chase! Their serpentine bodies continually writhe as each extends their sharp claws in attempt after attempt to finally capture the flaming pearl. However, their single interest is forever blazing between them, just outside of their reach.
This 2019 2 oz Silver Perth Double Dragon High Relief Proof features an awesome design and the impeccable production for which Perth Mint is so well known! This is definitely a series you will proudly display among your favorite pieces.
With an extremely limited mintage of only 1,500 for global distribution, you really must not delay!
