Story

Year of the ox design

Dating back thousands of years, the Chinese lunar calendar features 12 auspicious animals, each said to influence the personality of those born during its ascendency. The ox, which oversees people born in 2021 and every 12th preceding year, is believed to inspire compassion, intelligence, honesty and reliability across its cohort.

Antique finished design

The coin’s highly appealing composition portrays an ox and its calf in a bucolic Chinese scene featuring a mountain village, a cherry tree and a pheasant in flight. The antique finish adds distinctive tonal qualities to the design which also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
