Brisbane Bullion presents the 1/2oz Lunar 2012 - Year of the Dragon Silver Coin from the Australian Lunar Series II by the Perth Mint.

At a convenient 1/2oz size and as part of the popular and highly collectible Perth Mint Lunar series, this Lunar Dragon Silver coin makes a great gift for both bullion investors and coin collectors.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle.

Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’.  The Dragon is the fifth sign of the Chinese Zodiac.  The Dragon is a symbol of power and wealth and is believed to bring good fortune and prosperity.  People born in the year of the dragon have a natural charisma, ambition and determination.  They are natural organizers, known for their positive attitude and vibrant personalities.
