The Dragon and Tiger design is a limited issue from the Perth Mint and features two different symbols of luck and power. The dragon was commonly adopted by the emperors as a symbol of power because of its mythical powers and divine origin. The tiger is the largest predatory cat in the world and makes a natural symbol of power as a result.
Both creatures are depicted in this 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Dragon and Tiger design pursuing a flaming pearl. The creatures exhibit natural balance and interdependence in the design, with the tiger on the left pursuing the pearl as the dragon slithers across the right side of the design. The reverse also includes the flaming pearl in the center which is often represented emerging through mist, smoke, and shadows. To pursue the flaming pearl is to pursue knowledge and enlightenment.
The obverse design of 2018 1 oz Silver Australian Dragon and Tiger coins includes the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty features on these coins in right-profile relief in a design which was created for the Royal Mint of England in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for use on British and Commonwealth coins.
