Story

A new Lunar year

First issued in 1996 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series portrays the 12 animals of the ancient lunar zodiac. Annual designs featuring the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig are depicted in sequence according to the position they finished in the emperor’s Great Race. In fourth position was the rabbit, which is said to bestow intelligence, creativity, vigilance, and compassion on those born under its influence in 2023 and every 12th preceding year.

Coloured Year of the Rabbit design

The coin portrays a rabbit leaping among grasses with feathery plumes in colour. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, the inscription ‘RABBIT 2023’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation packaging

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin comes in a luxury red display case with a magnetic lid and an illustrated shipper. When aligned with other shippers from the Australian Lunar Series III, 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.
