Clever rabbit

First released for 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the 12 animals of the lunar zodiac. This 2023 coin celebrates the rabbit, whose rule over every fourth year in the 12-year lunar calendar is said to bestow intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion on people born under its influence.

Gilded design

The coin portrays gilded images of an alert rabbit with its ears erect and second rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, the inscription ‘RABBIT 2023’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
