This month’s bulletin is a bonanza for those inspired by Chinese mythology and symbolism.
Always popular among collectors and gift buyers, coloured edition coins from the Australian Lunar Series feature vivid reverse depictions. This year’s additions portray the labrador retriever and German shepherd – two of the world’s favourite dogs.
Adding to the prestigious options available for everyone celebrating the Year of the Dog, the latest Typeset Collection showcases four superb finishes meticulously created by our craftspeople.
The new Dragon and Pearl antiqued silver coin is a shining example of creativity and innovation. Portraying two mythical dragons surrounding a rotating pearl-like bead, it brings together two of the most auspicious symbols in Chinese culture.
The dragon is also one of the symbols depicted on our colourful new Blessing coin. Eagle-eyed collectors will spot that together with other coloured design elements it represents the lucky Chinese character ‘Fu’.
