Introduction

As a long-term partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is pleased to offer one of world’s finest minted silver bullion coins, the 2024 Australian Lunar Year of the Dragon.

These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Year of the Dragon, the fifth of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. In addition, the most popular one-ounce version in the series has a limited annual mintage of only 300,000 pieces, giving the silver coin a considerable collector’s premium in the secondary market.

The Year of the Dragon silver coin contains 99.99% pure silver and is produced with a special minting technique that ensures the coin is in proof-like condition, meaning it has exceptionally shiny and mat surfaces coupled with the richest of detail.

Those born under the sign of the Chinese Lunar Dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic. This bullion coin is truly a piece of breathtaking silver art suitable for collectors with an eye for beauty and those who wish to give their loved ones something really memorable and special.

History

Australian Lunar silver coin - Year of the Dragon

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, and each of them is celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the dragon is next celebrated in 2024.

Dragon is the 5th in the 12-year-cycle of Chinese zodiac signs. People born in the year of dragon are generally born with the zodiac dragon characteristics. They are believed to have a strong physique, full of energy and endless vitality. They have an ambitious target and never give up. They have a heavy self-consciousness as well as leadership qualities. It can therefore be seen that the Australian Silver Lunar Year of the Dragon coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Silver Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious silver artwork.

The Perth Mint is a world distinguished mint and precious metals refiner that is located in the City of Perth, in Western Australia. The Perth Mint was founded in 1896 by Britain’s Royal Mint in response to the newly discovered gold deposits in Western Australia. Perth Mint’s task was to refine gold ore from the mines and to strike sovereign gold coins from the refined bullion. Between 1899 and 1931 the Pert Mint produced  a considerable amount of gold sovereigns which were distributed in Australia  and throughout the British Empire to be used as circulating currency. British control over Perth Mint was relinquished in 1971 to the Government of Western Australia which then assumed ownership of  the  mint.  Today,  the  Perth  Mint  is  hailed  for  the exceptional  quality  of  its  world  class investment bullion coins like the Kookaburra and Koala silver coins, and the Lunar Series. The Perth Mint has been a member of the London Gold Market (predecessor of the LBMA) since 1934. The swan design, which is the Mint’s official assay stamp registered with the LBMA, is recognised internationally and was inspired by the Mint’s location in Perth, where the main river, the Swan, runs through the city.
