As the Chinese Lunar Calendar ushers in the Year of the Dragon, the innovative tetra-decagon series begins with its first annual release. The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a twelve-year cycle. Each cycle is represented by a different animal, each with its own distinct personality. People born within each lunar year are believed to possess the qualities of that year’s animal, using those traits to achieve success and happiness throughout life.
This NCLT Royal Australian Mint coin is the first 50 cent Lunar Year commemorative and is also a 14 sided Tetra-Decagon coin. This is the only series with this shaped coin.
