Fiery start to new Dragon Series! MINTAGE JUST 5,000 COINS! Tapping into humanity’s eternal fascination with the world’s most famous mythological creature, and forming a fantastic way to celebrate the dawn of the Year of the Dragon, the new Perth Mint-struck Dragons of Legend 1oz Silver Proof Series has just been launched! A spectacular start to what is sure to be a hotly pursued legal tender program, the first coin in this captivating series pays homage to the Red Welsh Dragon – or ‘y Ddraig Goch’. Thought to have been introduced in Britain by the Romans, the symbol of the Red Dragon has a long, close association with the Welsh. Not only did Welsh Britons fight off the Saxon hordes under the banner of the Red Dragon, but the Welsh-born English King, Henry VII (1485-1509), flew the Red Dragon standard during the War of the Roses, with this powerful symbol subsequently included in the Tudor Royal Arms. Although the Red Dragon had been inextricably linked to the Welsh people for many hundreds of years, the longterm association was only formalised in the 20th century. The Red Dragon became the official symbol of Wales in 1901, and has adorned the Welsh national flag since 1959. A superlative example of the art of coinage, it is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into the stunning reverse design of this spellbinding new .999 fine Silver Proof. The vivid full-colour motif instantly catches the eye, with the glorious blood-red hues of the fiery Welsh Dragon contrasting brilliantly with the fully struck-up, finely detailed background portrayal of a mountainous setting. An official legal tender issue of the Commonwealth nation of Tuvalu, the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse. As this program is sure to be highly sought after, with the dragon so popular across the globe, and the first coin in any series inevitably the most hotly pursued, time is of the essence for those interested in the 2012 $1 Welsh Red Dragon 1oz Silver Proof. With the mintage set at a mere 5,000 coins – each set in an official Perth Mint case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity – a sell-out would seem inevitable.




Part of the proceeds from the sale of each coin in this dramatic celebration of the mythical dragon will be donated to UNICEF-Australia, with US$25,000 to be raised across the 5-coin series

Exclusive! Worldwide mintage restricted to a mere 5,000 coins
