Every year the Australian Perth Mint issues a brand new Lunar coin showcasing the Chinese Zodiac animal for that year. The high metal purity and detailed Zodiac designs make the Silver Lunar Program very popular among coin collectors, solidifying it as a celebrated series.
The 2021 Chinese Zodiac animal is the Ox. People who were born during this animal’s year tend to be diligent, honest, and patient. These traits usually make someone a great business-person, teacher, or designer. Although known to exhibit stubbornness and tardiness on occasion, those born in the Year of the Ox are still appreciated by their friends and family for their reliability and tenderness.
The obverse of this Zodiac coin displays the Jody Clark depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions surrounding the obverse include the weight, purity, and denomination of the coin.
The reverse of the coin features an adult ox standing beside its calf while underneath the shade of a cherry blossom tree. A village can be seen in the distant background. The Perth Mint “P” mintmark appears near the ox’s rear leg.
