Why buy this $100 Australia 2020-P 1 oz Gold Double Dragon?
While depicted as fierce, evil creatures in the West, dragons are considered good, friendly creatures in Eastern culture. The scaly creatures represent good luck, power, and wealth. They are often shown among clouds chasing a fiery pearl, which represents enlightenment. This issue from the Perth Mint honors that tradition. The coin was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold and bears a "P" mint mark on the reverse. It is part of a mintage of just 5,000 pieces.
Exquisite Double Dragon Design
The coin's obverse bears a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed by Jody Clark, the image shows the monarch down to her shoulders. She wears earrings, a necklace, and the crown that she traditionally wears to Britain's State Opening of Parliament, her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her effigy is encircled by a rim frame on which there are several inscriptions. "ELIZABETH II" and "AUSTRALIA" are on the top half, while "1 OZ 9999 AU," "2020," and "100 DOLLARS" are on the bottom half.
Two dragons chase a flaming pearl on the reverse. The dragons are opposite one another with their bodies curving around the outside of the rim. They have their tongues out, sticking them at a flaming pearl in the center. Stylized clouds make for a stunning backdrop.
