Story

Rabbit ascending

Dating back thousands of years, the Chinese lunar calendar features 12 auspicious animals, each said to influence the personality of those born during its ascendancy. The rabbit, which oversees people born in 2023 and every 12th preceding year, is believed to bless its cohort with intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion.

Year of the Rabbit design

The coin portrays an alert rabbit with its ears erect and another rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. The animals are pictured in a bucolic scene featuring a picket fence, rolling hills, flowers, cabbages and three further rabbits. Also included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
