2018 Australian 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin - Figure Eight Dragon
Recommended Supplies : Not
As an innovative first from the Perth Mint, comes the very first figure eight shaped coin in the world! In Chinese culture, the number eight is considered extremely lucky as the Chinese word for "eight" which means good fortune or money.
The number eight is also uniquely symmetric and, when laid on its side, resembles the mathematical symbol for infinity.
Contains 2 oz of .999 fine Silver.
Each coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within an illustrated shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Obverse: Displays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
Reverse: Features two dragons wrapped around one another and holding coins in their claws. The Perth Mint’s traditional "P" mintmark also appears in the design.
