Story

Auspicious symbols of strength

The strengths of the 12 animals of the lunar calendar are said to be evident in those born during their rule. Fourth in line after the mouse, ox and tiger, the rabbit is said to bestow intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion on those born under its influence in 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011 and 2023.

Coloured rabbit with gold privy mark

The coin portrays an alert rabbit with its ears erect and another rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. Also included in the design is a 1-gram pure gold privy insert portraying the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, the inscription ‘RABBIT 2023’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
