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.
The first dragon silver coins that I acquired were the 2000 Lunar Dragon I and the 2012 Lunar Dragon II minted by the Perth Mint that depicts the mythical Dragon. In 2017, Perth Mint started producing special Dragon coins and the succeeding year 2018 started the bullion Dragon coins in the shape of rectangular bars.
In this Silver Dragon Coin series, I will be showing the Perth Mint silver dragon coins. In case you are interested, provided below are the first two that dragon coins previously featured in the series.

Today, I am featuring the
