Product Information

 
In 2009, the popular Australian Lunar coin series celebrates the Year of the Ox.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

Struck from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the 2009 releases are available as individual 1 kilo and 1oz coins and in a Three-Coin Set comprising 2oz, 1oz and 1/2oz coins. (1oz denomination shown in obverse illustration.)

Year of the Ox Design

The reverse of each coin depicts an ox and a calf standing on grass with hills in the background.  As well as the inscription ‘Year of the Ox’ and the Chinese character for ‘ox’, the design also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

The Perth Mint will release no more than:

  • 500 individual kilo coins
  • 5,000 individual 1oz coins
  • 1,000 Three-Coin Sets (2oz, 1oz, 1/2oz)

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

Contemporary Presentation

Silver Proof Lunar Series II coins are housed in contemporary red and black display cases with illustrated shippers.
