In Oriental culture, dragons aren’t the fierce fire-breathing creatures like some cultures believe. Dragons are noble, benevolent creatures that sometimes bring gifts like the one on the reverse of this coin. Here the dragon is chasing a pearl which is a symbol of prosperity. What a perfect image to put on a bar of precious metal like this 1 oz .9999 fine silver bar. This image fills the whole side with on other markings except the Perth Mint’s ‘P’.
Jody Clark’s popular image of Queen Elizabeth graces the obverse of this bar. Here she is wearing a crown and her royal jewels. At the top of the bar is ‘ELIZABETH II’. Under this is ‘AUSTRALIA 1oz 9999 Ag’. Below her image is ‘1 DOLLAR 2022’.

You also get a bar that is actually a coin so it has a legal face value. Add to all this that there are only 250,000 worldwide and you have all the makings of a highly collectible silver bar coin. Get yours before they are all gone.
