My dragon kicks all their asses. I am glad you did not include mine in your poll. Perth mint would've been ashamed of themselves.

Series one by far! I do not like to have to be told that it is the "Year of the Dragon". It appears obvious to me since it is a Lunar coin. Secondly, a altered copy is always just a copy IMO. Herb

The neck of the 2012 dragon looks like it gonna snap and brake at any time.

They both have five talons on their feet.

I know there's no accounting for taste but I've never seen a coin from anywhere that was as drop dead gorgeous as the Series I dragons. One of our fellow members showed me some 1 ounce silver versions before I even got into metals and I was hooked. Series II is certainly no slouch though.

They do? Seems like both hands have one hand that you can only see 4 talons.

I believe the AG is a mirror copy. Perhaps it would have been better to do the same here if needed. I do not dislike the II but consistency with AG would have been better IMO.

I think the detail of the scales is much better in the Series I - similar to the the scale detail seen in the Canadian Dragons.

I'm gonna have to disagree with most and say that series 2 design is better.

I think series 2 has more personality. I see a dragon which is not the perfect mythical creature, but rather a creature that might reflect 'typical dragonhood,' if such a term exists :D

It seems like the series 1 dragon is angry. they were trying to hard to make the most epic coin ever. They did a great job.

Overall, I like the fact that they went a different route with the series 2 coin and it grows on you.

I like Series 1 better, but thats not to say I dislike Series 2. I like it also. Only time will tell if it will command a similar premium.

Ya know, Herb mentioned Series II being a sort of copy. I almost wish they'd LITERALLY copied the Series I (changing the dates of course) for the new issues instead of redesigning them entirely.
