The Dragon and Tiger design has been used by the Perth Mint in recent years as part of its wider collection of gold and silver bullion for sale representing Chinese culture. The beasts are most often used in yin-yang symbolism. The mortal enemies cannot defeat one another, but exist instead to keep one another in check to preserve and protect the balance of nature in the world.
Tigers are revered in a different manner in Chinese culture than the dragon. While the dragon is a symbol of power, fortune, and good luck, the tiger is an elusive creature featured for its beauty and strength. Certain folk stories speak of tigers protecting good men in this world while destroying evil men.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Dragon and Tiger coins is the image of a tiger and dragon circling a flaming pearl in the center. The tiger prowls along the left side of the design field looking at his foe, the slithering dragon on the right side of the design field. In the center is the flaming pearl of infinite wisdom, an item both are seeking but will likely never attain.
The obverse of 2019 Proof Silver Australian Dragon and Tiger Coins features the design of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth portrait of Her Majesty to feature on Australian coins since 1953 and is the first effigy of Her Majesty since the 1960s to include her neckline and shoulders in the portrait.
