NEW YORK, February 5, 2018 – The prestigious Perth Mint is renowned for pushing the boundaries of convention and aesthetic design since its founding as a branch of the Royal Mint. Since then it has released many different coins and products that have become a staple in many collections. Today, they are releasing a brand new rectangular coin, the 2018 1 oz. Silver Australian Dragon Coin Bar.
The Perth Mint has been creating high-quality coins of the highest purity levels since its creation in 1899. Today it is famous for producing the Kangaroo and Lunar series, however, it doesnâ€™t shy away from thinking outside the box, or in this case, circle.
This coin will be the first ever Australian rectangular bullion coin. The coin features a beautiful design of a Chinese dragon in flight. This is a snake dragon with a fiery tail that appears to be flying through wind and clouds, above rolling waves as it chases a flaming pearl. In Chinese culture, it is believed that dragons are divine mythological creatures who symbolize auspicious power, wealth, strength, and bringers of good fortune. Dragons rule over water and weather. In oriental pictures, dragons are typically depicted chasing or holding a flaming pearl. The pearl itself symbolizes spiritual energy, prosperity, wisdom, power, and immortality.

Each rectangular coin has been minted from .9999 pure silver and will come in a one-ounce size. The 2018 1 oz. Silver Dragon is issued as legal tender that is recognized by Australia. These coins have a $1 AUD denomination and come in a brilliant uncirculated condition. The Perth Mint will run a limited mintage of only 500,000 of these coins.
Savvy investors will note that Silver has maintained a very stable price since 2013 and continues to do so, making this a valuable investment for collectors and investors alike.
