The 2000 Australian Dragon; Icon of the Lunar Series
The 2000 Australian Dragon is the fifth in the Perth Mint’s very popular series of modern collectible coins based on the Chinese lunar calendar. The one-ounce gold Dragon was the first coin in the series to reach the production cap of 30,000 and is now available only in the secondary market.
In addition to bearing what many consider to be the iconic Chinese symbol, the 2000 Dragon was also the first coin struck in the “2000 series”, which will be minted for 1,000 years.
The 2000 Australian Gold Dragon was produced in weights of 1 kg, 10 oz., 2 oz., 1 oz., ¼ oz., 1/10 oz., and 1/20 oz., of which all but the three largest coins have production caps. Although the Perth Mint can produce back-dated coins until the cap is met, it has now closed out the series.
The 2000 Silver Dragon was produced in weights of 1 kg, 10 oz., 2 oz., 1 oz., ½ oz., with production caps on the one-ounce and half-ounce coins.
