Gold Ounce 2020 Dragon, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Ounce 2020 Dragon

The Australian one-ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This coin is part of the Perth Mint's Chinese Myths and Legends series, and features a Chinese Dragon.

The Mint says about it:
This stunning pure gold coin honours the most powerful and divine creature in Chinese mythology - the dragon.

The oriental dragon is traditionally portrayed in serpentine form with scaly skin, bulging eyes and sharp claws. Despite its fearsome appearance, it is said to bestow kindness, good luck and fortune upon humanity. The coin’s reverse portrays a dramatic representation of a Chinese dragon intent on catching a flaming pearl. Another highly symbolic motif in Chinese culture, the flaming pearl is a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment.

Obverse
Australia / Gold Ounce 2020 Dragon - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders) and extends almost to the rim of the coin; consequently, the legend does not run continuously around the rim.

The artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark) are incuse in tiny letters in the left field of the effigy (on the Queen's right shoulder, near the rim).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 100 DOLLARS ·.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 100 DOLLARS ·
Reverse

The reverse of the coin portrays a Chinese dragon - a serpentine shaped mythical creature, clutching a symbolic pearl in one of its claws.

On the rim to the left is the Perth Mint’s P mint mark. Below left on the dragon's tail, the designer's initials JM, for Jennifer McKenna.

Around above, the inscription 2020 1oz 9999 GOLD.
