A History of the Platinum Dragon Coin
The Platinum dragon coin was first released in 2019. It was designed in response to the overwhelming popularity of the Lunar Series Dragon coins. The Dragon is by far the most popular design on the Perth Mint Lunar series of coins, followed by the Tiger. The Perth Mint did release a dragon coin in gold and silver, however these have a slightly different design, and are in the shape of a bar, not a coin. However, because they still have a legal tender and each coin has a face value, they are called coins, not bars.

The Perth Mint releases several other platinum coins, however, several are no longer minted - these include the platinum Platypus and the platinum Koala coins. The platinum Kangaroo is currently the most prominent platinum coin issued by the Perth Mint. The Lunar Series has also been launched in platinum in 2020. The Platypus coin was in circulation until 2017, when it was discontinued and replaced by the Kangaroo coin.
