Story

Australian opal

Australia supplies the overwhelming majority of the world’s opal, a colourful mineral-like material which we’ve put to outstanding artistic use in this exceptionally popular series. With previous Opal Lunar coins sold out, this rabbit addition should prove to be another keenly sought after collectable.

Rabbit design

The coin incorporates authentic Australian opal in its stunning rabbit-shaped centrepiece. Including the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the coin’s outer ring features. intricate patterning with stylised depictions of snapdragons, said to be lucky flowers for those born in the Year of the Rabbit.
