The Chinese zodiac is a significant cultural tool that has influenced the decisions and beliefs of millions of people for more than 2,000 years. Based on a 12-year cycle, each year in the lunar calendar is represented by an animal with particular personality traits and affinities.

DESIGN

The coin’s reverse depicts the heads of the 12 animals of the zodiac in year order encircling a central bagua, a motif incorporating Taoist trigrams, or symbols comprising three lines. Each trigram represents one of eight fundamental elements or concepts: heaven/sky, lake, fire, thunder, wind, water, mountain or earth. Within these is the yin yang symbol denoting universal balance. A pattern encloses the central bagua and stylised clouds decorate the outer rim of the coin. The obverse displays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, the weight and fineness, and the 2019 year-date. In keeping with its ancient themes, the coin has been ‘antiqued’ by hand to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an aged artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin in the limited mintage may vary. No more than 388 of the 12 Lunar Animals 2019 5oz Silver Antiqued Coin will be released.
