CoinSilver Ten Ounces 2019 Dragon and Phoenix

The Australian ten ounces silver piece (abbreviated as 10 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") 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 the Dragon and Phoenix.

The Mint says about it:
In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature, a symbol of power, strength, wealth and good fortune, and it is often portrayed in pursuit of chasing a luminous or flaming pearl. The flaming pearl is viewed as a metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and spiritual essence. It is also said to rid a person of their troubles and bring them career success as well as fortune and good health. The dragons are traditionally shown with their mouths open and their eyes wide, as they endeavour to catch the prized treasure.

Obverse

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 10oz 9999 Ag 2020 10 DOLLARS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "10 oz 9999 Ag" means "ten troy ounces of 99.99% silver" - Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.
