2012 Australian Gold Year of the Dragon Bullion Coins
The 2012 Australian gold bullion 'Year of the Dragon' coins was released on the 1st September 2011, we have them in stock now for immediate despatch. These are part of the second series for the Chinese lunar calendar.

Brief History
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle, each year in the cycle is associated with a different animal. The Perth Mint in Australia started issuing series of Chinese Lunar Calendar Coins, in gold and silver, in 1996, which was the Year of the Rat. The 12 year cycle of this first series ran from 1996 to 2007 inclusive, and all designs proved to be very popular. We rarely manage to buy any of the older years, which tend to be very hard to source.
In view of the success of and demand for the first series, the Perth Mint are to produce a second series, which we also expect to be very popular. We just hope the next twelve years don't fly past as quickly as the last twelve!
We recommend that you buy this year's coins while we still have them available.

New Series II Design Feature
The reverse of all sizes and weights is to be identical, while the obverse will show both the monetary denomination, and the size (weight of gold content). This is a change from the first series, on which the weight was always shown on the reverse.
The second series also features the Chinese character for the animal the year represents, so the 2012 coins feature the Chinese character for Dragon.

We will sell 2012 "Year of the Dragon" coins as follows:-
