First issued in 1995 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the Chinese zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This 2021 coin celebrates the Year of the Ox, whose rule over every second year in the 12-year lunar cycle is said to influence people born during 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021.

Coloured Ox Reverse

Depicted in stunning colour, the strapping ox on the coin’s reverse stands in eye-catching contrast to the mirror-like gold proof background. The design includes representations of bamboo, a symbol of virtue, the inscription OX 2021, the Chinese character for ‘ox’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation Packaging 

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin comes in a prestigious black display case with a magnetic lid and an illustrated shipper. When aligned with the previous Year of the Mouse shipper and future shippers from the series, the illustration forms a diorama depicting all 12 animals in the order they finished The Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.
