The story of the Four Dragons from ancient Chinese culture speaks of four playful dragons who lived in the sea. These dragons would fly over the nation and one day noticed the people of China starving as their crops withered and died. In defiance of the Jade Emperor, these dragons scooped up water in their mouths and filled the clouds till rain fell upon the Earth, water the crops and saving the people. Their punishment, it is said, was stiff.

On the reverse of 2019 Silver Australian Double Dragon Coins is the image of two dragons circling one another as they exchange intense looks. The center of the design includes a flaming pearl, the object which both dragons seek to obtain.

The obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Double Dragon Coins includes a new effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. This is the first change since 1998 and this sixth-generation Australian design is based on Jody Clark’s fifth-generation work for the Royal Mint of England that was unveiled in 2015. This right-profile portrait of the Queen is the first to feature her neckline and shoulders on an Australian coin since 1966.
