First issued in 1995 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. This 2021 coin celebrates the Year of the Ox, whose rule over every second year in the 12-year lunar cycle is said to influence people born during 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021.

Coloured Ox Design

The coin’s reverse portrays a charming coloured image of an ox and its calf. Also included in the design is a cherry blossom, tree a symbol of love and beauty; the Chinese character for ‘ox’, the inscription ‘OX 2021’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Classic Case & Themed Shipper

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic display case and an illustrated shipper which aligns with previous and future 1oz coloured coin releases to form a diorama of every animal in the lunar calendar.
