Collectable themed shipper

As an exciting new addition to the 12-year Australian Lunar coin series, each shipper in the Australian Lunar Series III will portray the story of how that animal came to occupy their position in the zodiac. The shippers of coins in the Lunar Series III will, when arranged in order, form a diorama depicting all the animals in The Great Race. This ancient myth tells how the Chinese zodiac came into being.

Each coin is presented in a prestigious red display case with geometric magnetic lid and adorned with gold lettering and a geometric design.
