Description

The Perth Mint and Australia Post have released this stamp and coin cover to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year is one of the most important celebrations for Chinese people across the globe. It is a time for families to reunite, as well as honour deities and ancestors.

In Australia and throughout the world, Lunar New Year is celebrated with dragon boat races and the dragon dance, performed through the streets of our major cities and towns to the sound of cymbals and drums.

The dragon is believed to bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year, and the longer the dragon in the dance, the more luck it will bring to the community. In Chinese culture, dragons possess great power, dignity and wisdom. While fierce and bold they are also benevolent.

Issued as Tuvlau legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
 
The reverse of the coin depicts a Chinese dragon in colour overlaid with lanterns
