2017 Silver Dragon & Phoenix: Silver Dragon Coins Part 1

The dragon is the most important cultural and mythological symbol of China. It is also a favorite design of many coin collectors and precious metals stackers like myself.

I have long been attracted to anything dragon (and thus collected them in different forms, including in Beanie Baby), even before I started stacking. WHY? I was born on the Lunar Calendar Year of the FIRE DRAGON, the strongest and fiercest Dragon in mythical land, LOL!

The first Perth Mint dragon coins that I acquired were the 2020 Lunar Dragon I and the 2012 Lunar Dragon II. I may show the Lunar Dragon coins in the future.

For this week, I will show three silver dragon coins, starting with this first commemorative issue release in 2017.

2017 Australia 1 oz Silver Dragon & Phoenix BU

Composition: .9999 Silver, Weight: 31.135 g, Diameter: 40.6 mm, Thickness: 4 mm
On the reverse side of the 2017 Australian Dragon and Phoenix Silver Coins is the image of the Phoenix and Dragon circling the center of the design field. The center of the design field includes a flaming pearl that is emblematic of knowledge and the pursuit of eternal wisdom. While the dragon also represents power and good luck in Chinese culture, the phoenix is a universal symbol of rebirth and revival following destruction.

The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 1 Dollar - Elizabeth II 4th Portrait - Dragon & Phoenix is a non-circulating coin. Among the first of its Chinese cultural designs, the Dragon and Phoenix is minted in .9999 pure silver in limited quantities.

Stay tuned for the next silver dragon coin in this series!

I hope you managed to source a few more of these beauties Sis.
I have a dealer locally but he is charging far too much for them.
Always with Love.... 🌺 💝 🌹 💓 🌸

I regret that I did not. Gosh, they ere so inexpensive back then, but I only and usually get one specimen of a coin that is not in my stacking list. OMG, they are so pricey today and will not be able to afford it at all. Same with my Lunar Dragons, I only have one of each of the I and II, I could have bought several then even when they already came with a premium in 2015. Here are the listings from APMEX and JMB which is out of stock:

For sure your Black Flag Queen Anne's revenge will be the same. Of the Perth Mint designs, the Dragons and the Swan were what I chose to "collect". I got the first Swan because of the hype and I love the elegant design of it. Like your Black Flag, the introductory price was really high. I wanted to get that Black Flag... maybe I should trade my Nautical coins the black flag, hehehe. Have a restful 2 days, my beautiful sis, @kerrislravenhill. Take care 🥰🌺🤙, lots of love and a million Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋!

I bought two MS70 dragon Phoenix when they first came out. Glad i did they are going for double what i paid now. Love dragon coins rounds or pours. Nice show bestie🥰🤗

I would just naturally get the dragons because of the design. So I lucked out that I did, but you, on the other hand, just have an instinct about these coins.
Stay safe and take care, bestie and Have a fabulous day 🥰🌺🤙

That is a seriously cool coin, looking forward to seeing more in this series

Totally! And the premiums have skyrocketed on these ones, it is absurd!!! I am glad I had one and got it when they first released by the mint. Generally speaking, that is the best time to get these types of coins. Thank you for letting me share my interest with you, my friend, @tattoodjay. Have a great evening and Take care 🥰🌺🤙

Good morning, Have a great day and stay safe :)

Good show @silversaver888. I'm not a huge dragon guy but those are some quality coins, no doubt.

Hehehe, not all are dragon guys! Other than dragons, the other mythical creature I like and therefore collect are mermaids! And then, I am a dyed-in-the-wool American Patriot, so any American icon design on silver or gold coins or generic pieces, I get them for my stack (SOL, American Buffalo, American Prospector, American Bald Eagle) especially if they are trade unit designs.
Thanks for stopping by, @summertooth! Have a great day and take care 🥰🌺🤙

Beautiful coins, I also love dragons most coins with dragons have amazing art work and these are no exception.

We have that in common, my friend @maddogmike!
Have a wonderful evening, stay safe and take care 🥰🌺🤙

I love the fine detail on the Reverse of these coins with the Dragon and Phoenix! 😀Then you flip it over to the Obverse and the very classic Queen Elizabeth II!
Very special @silversaver888....and in .9999 Fine Silver !!!🤗
Beautiful coins my friend!!😍😍😀

I love Dragons on silver coins, and hopefully someday when the year of the dragon comes along, I will be able to buy the fractional gold version. I think it will come around again in 2024 or 2025. I will show the 2018 shortly! Be sure to check it out, my friend, @silvertop. Have a lovely evening, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

I will definitely check it out @silversaver888!!!
Have a lovely evening my friend!!!😍😍😀
