2021 1 oz Australian Rectangular Silver Dragon Bar

The Chinese dragon is a mythological creature that is legendary across mythology, folklore, and culture at large in Asia. The Chinese dragon is not only associated with the Emperors of old, but with the very founding of the empires of the past and the nation it has become today. Continuing its beautiful rectangular bullion release, the Perth Mint now offers its 2021 design in this coveted series. Coin Highlights: Coins arrive in plastic flips, tubes of 20, or Monster Boxes of 200 coins! Limited mintage of only 250,000 coins! Contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver in BU condition. Issued a face value of $1 (AUD) by Australia. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. A fearsome Chinese dragon on the reverse. Stunning rectangular shape. The 2018 debut of the 1 oz silver coin Australian Rectangular Dragon Series from the Perth Mint marked the first-ever release of a rectangular silver bullion coin. Though it has the look of a silver bullion bar, these beautiful silver specimens are legal tender bullion coins. Each year, the Perth Mint offers a new depiction of the Chinese dragon on the reverse. Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of 2021 1 oz Australian Rectangular Dragon Coins. This stunning sixth-generation portrait of the Queen captures her at the age of 89. For the first time since 1966, an Australian coin portrait of the Queen includes her full neckline and shoulders. A new depiction of the Chinese dragon appears on the reverse side of 2021 Australian Rectangular Dragon Coins. This year's depiction is, perhaps, the most aggressive and ferocious so far in the series. The dragon's figure takes up most of the design field in this year's image, with the dragon's face front and center as its body coils behind it, almost forming a figure-eight.
