Spectacular Mythical Dragon Design
Obverse: The portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA," "1 OZ 999 SILVER," "2012" and "1 DOLLAR." The effigy was crafted by artist Ian Rank-Broadley, a British sculptor who has created additional renditions of the Queen for The Royal Mint's commemorative sixtieth wedding anniversary and Diamond Jubilee releases.
Reverse: The reverse depicts the serpentine form of a gorgeous, deep red dragon, as it chases a flaming pearl. The Chinese character representing "dragon" is incorporated into the intricate design, with the inscription "YEAR OF THE DRAGON" curving below and the Perth Mint mark "P" at right.
