Chinese cultural designs on Perth Mint coins have been growing in popularity in recent years. Building on the success of its Lunar Series collections and expanding into new series, the dragon has been a common focal point of collections such as the Dragon and Phoenix, Dragon and Tiger, and Double Dragon releases. Introduced in 2018, the Australian Rectangular Dragons are perhaps the most exciting of the bunch. Right now, you can buy 2020 Australian Rectangular Dragon 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 2020 Australian Rectangular Dragon 1 oz Gold Coin, you receive your specimens inside of individual protective plastic capsules. The coins in this listing are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The Perth Mint has set a mintage of just 8,888 coins for 2020, down significantly from 25,000 in 2018 and 20,000 in 2019. The use of this mintage figure reflects the view of the number eight as important in Chinese culture as a symbol of good luck and fortune.
On the obverse side of the 2020 Australian Rectangular Dragon 1 oz Gold Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. The Queens bust as shown here was created in July 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. It was adapted for Australian denominations in 2019 to include her neckline and shoulders in a portrait for the first time since 1966. The Queens right-profile image is accompanied by inscriptions of Elizabeth II, Australia, 1 oz 9999 Au, 100 Dollars, and 2020.
The reverse field of the 2020 Australian Rectangular Dragon Gold Coins includes the depiction of two dragons. Unlike the first two releases that included just one dragon, this years design has two dragons pursuing the same flaming pearl at the center of the design field. The only inscription on this face of the coin is a P mint mark from the Perth Mint.
The Australian Rectangular Dragon Series debuted in 2018 with silver and gold bullion coins, followed shortly after by proof versions of each release. The coins share the same design for each date mark, but the Perth Mint offers a new image of the dragon and flaming pearl for each release.
