The obverse side of 2022 Gold Australian Chinese Myths & Legends Dragon Coins features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in the definitive sixth-generation portrait of her reign to grace Australian coins. Created for the Royal Mint in 2015 by Jody Clark, this portrait came to Australian coins starting in 2018 and is now the primary design in use across all of Perth’s collections of Australian coinage.
On the reverse field of 2022 1 oz Gold Chinese Myths & Legends Dragon Coin is the image of a Chinese dragon. With a stylized field of clouds behind it, the dragon coils its body while clutching a flaming pearl in one of its claws.
Perth Mint was founded in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint branch in Australia. It continued to perform coining duties for Pound-based denominations following Australia’s federation movement in 1902. After the Royal Australian Mint was established in 1965, control of the Perth Mint was eventually passed to the state government of Western Australia.
