Lunar coin features year of the ox
First issued in 1995 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the Chinese zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.
This 2021 coin celebrates the Year of the Ox, whose rule over every second year in the 12-year lunar cycle is said to influence people born during 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021.
Each coin's reverse portrays a charming image of an ox and its calf with a cherry blossom tree, a symbol of love and beauty. The design includes the inscription OX 2021, the Chinese character for 'ox' and The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark.
Issue limit and mintage
Just 4,000 individual 1/2oz coins from a maximum mintage of 5,000 are available.
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, each release comes in a classic display case with a clear lid and an illustrated shipper.
When aligned with the previous Year of the Mouse shipper and future shippers from the series, the illustration forms a diorama depicting all 12 animals in the order they finished The Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.
