This is the second annual release of the Rectangular Dragon.

The vertical orientation is perfect for the highly-stylized dragon design featured on the reverse. For this 2019 edition the entire design, both obverse and reverse, is refreshed!

Throughout the world, the dragon’s ageless legends have captured the imaginations of young and old alike. Although the countless heraldic stories may differ in their details, there are many common themes that have followed the ages.

This 2019 edition, although stylistically similar to the 2018, the dragon’s long, scaled, serpentine body is positioned differently in its chase of the elusive flaming pearl. Depicted rising even higher into the clouds, the dragon twists its head and upper-body fiercely back to its left. This exposes more of its underbelly as it grasps desperately for the pearl; ever just out of reach. The dragon’s large head, with wide-open mouth reveals its fierceness, as does its exposed razor-sharp teeth.

As the legends nearly always include, the flaming pearl is the creature’s most coveted treasure. Also consistent with folklore, dragons sustain a unique connection with the earth’s primal forces. These are represented in the water, clouds, and wind.

The obverse displays in vertical format, the new Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Radiant lines, extending out from the bar’s center, fill the background behind the portrait. Inscriptions include “ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA,” 1 oz 9999 Ag,” the face value of 1 Dollar, and the release date.
