Story

Welcome the New Year

Chinese New Year is one of the most important celebrations for Chinese people across the globe. It is a time for families to reunite, as well as honour deities and ancestors. Portraying a lion dance, this Stamp and Coin Cover honours the traditional performance which brings luck, fortune and prosperity into a community during important festivals.

Lion dance design

The reverse of the coin features a coloured representation of a Chinese lion dance surrounded by ancient Chinese coins, flowers and lanterns. Also included in the design are the Chinese characters ‘恭喜发财’, a common phrase said to wish one a happy and prosperous New Year, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
