Security Authentication Feature

The reverse of the 10 oz, 2 oz, and 1 oz gold coins features a micro-engraved letter (P) that is only detectable with visual aids such as a magnifying glass.

On the gold dragon design, a micro-engraved 'P' letter can be observed on the dragon's ear. This measure is implemented to deter counterfeit coins from being falsely presented as authentic collectible proof coins.
