Story

Intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion

First issued in 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the ancient lunar zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This remarkable piece celebrates the rabbit, which is said to bestow intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion on those born under its influence in 2023 and every 12-preceding year.

Two rabbits

The high relief coin portrays an alert rabbit with its ears erect and another rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, the inscription ‘RABBIT 2023’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
