Year of the Dragon-Get ready for change

2012 is the Year of the Dragon according to the Chinese Zodiac.

This means there has been a flurry of beautiful and varied coins depicting the dragon released by both the Australian Perth Mint and Royal Australian Mints.

The dragon symbolises potency and has auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods.

The Chinese dragon is a combination of many different animals, the horn of the deer, the head of a camel, the eyes of a hare, the ears of a bull, the belly of a frog, the scales of a carp, the paws of a tiger and the claws of an eagle.
