Story

Lunar ox

Australia supplies the overwhelming majority of the world's opal, a colourful mineral-like material that has proved extremely popular as in insert in several Perth Mint collectables. With previous coins in the Opal Lunar series sold out, expectations are high that this year's ox design will prove equally successful.

Opal design

The coin's reverse incorporates an inner panel design of an ox detailed in pure Australian opal. Including The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark, the coin's outer ring features intricate patterning with stylised depictions of tulips - considered lucky flowers for those born in the Year of the Ox.
