The Wreck of the Gilt Dragon

Commemorating one of Australia’s earliest, most mysterious shipwrecks, this 99.9% silver triangular tribute honours the Gilt Dragon – lost off the coast of Western Australia in 1656.

Mutiny, mayhem and murder

Owned by the Dutch East India Company (VOC), the Gilt Dragon was on a trading voyage to Batavia (Jakarta) when she sank in April, 1656. The vessel took 118 of the crew to a watery grave, along with almost 80,000 guilders worth of silver coins and over 100,000 guilders worth of cargo. Of the 75 that made it to shore, the only known survivors were seven men sent to Batavia to seek help. Several missions were undertaken to find those left behind, but no one was ever found.

A compelling tribute…

Measuring 33.90mm x 39.90mm x 39.90mm, this eye-catching triangular coin was struck by the Royal Australian Mint. An official Australian legal tender issue, each coin is struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver. A fine piece of maritime memorabilia, the 2019 $1 Gilt Dragon Triangular 1oz Silver BU is taken from a mintage of 20,000.
