The Double Dragon design is a play on the importance of the dragon symbol in Chinese culture and mythology. While Western lore painted the dragon as a bringer of death and source of evil, the Chinese view dragons as exuberant, playful, and benevolent creatures. Dragons can live on land, under the water, and in the air. Though they have no wings, they can undulate through the sky and serve as a symbol of abundant life, strength, and prosperity.
On the obverse of the 2020 1 oz Gold Australian Double Dragon Coin is a right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the sixth-generation portrait of the Queen on Australian coinage and it was created in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. It depicts the Queen at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem crown, a crown worn primarily for the State Opening of Parliament.
The reverse field of 2020 Gold Australian Double Dragons includes the image of two slithering Chinese dragons moving around the outside edge of the design field. The two beasts are in hot pursuit of the flaming pearl, a symbol of infinite wisdom.
The Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia. Originally founded as part of the Royal Mint system on the continent, it is now owned by the state government of Western Australia and operates independently of the Royal Australian Mint.
