The 2018 one ounce gold Dragon Rectangular Coin. Is this a coin or a bar? By all definition, this Dragon is a coin - it has a face value of $100 (AUD) backed by the Australian government; all are identical - they do not have individual serial numbers and it features Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
It is a coin, but you would be forgiven for calling it a bar, due to its unusual shape for a coin. The rectangular coin containing 1oz of fine gold was produced by Perth Mint, who are well known for producing quality bullion items.
The coin is limited to a production of 25,000 units and as such will be an unusual piece for investors and collectors.
