The coin’s reverse portrays a dragon, waves, and stylised fog. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘dragon’, the inscription ‘DRAGON 2024’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary. The coin bears the Jody Clark Memorial Obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented with the dates of her reign ‘1952-2022’, as well as the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.

Those born under the sign of the Chinese Lunar Dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.
