The reverse of the coin features two dragons encircling a rotating pearlised charm*. The design includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. This coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin may vary. *The charm has been crafted to resemble a pearl but is not an authentic pearl.
