Product Information

 
In 2011, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Rabbit, the fourth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. These superb releases are perfect for people born in the Year of the Rabbit – 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011 – who are regarded as intelligent, articulate, compassionate and loyal.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

Struck from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the 2011 releases are available as individual 1oz and 1 kilo coins and a three-coin set (2oz, 1oz, 1/2oz).

Unique Reverse Design

The reverse of each coin depicts two rabbits nestling under foliage.  The Chinese character for ‘rabbit’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rabbit’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2011 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.

Extremely Limited Mintages

No more than 5,000 individual 1oz coins, 500 individual kilo coins and 1,000 Three-Coin Sets will be released.

Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin and set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Elegant Presentation

Silver Proof Australian Lunar Series II coins are housed in elegant black and red display cases, and are each presented in a colourful illustrated shipper.
