Charmed Design

The coin incorporates a rotating gold-plated sterling silver bead resembling the form of an ox. It is surrounded on the reverse by artistic portrayals of oxen among floral motifs, the bead rotates on a pin which holds it securely in the middle of the coin.

 As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse also includes the coin’s weight and fineness. The obverse of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II within a pattern of beads, the 2021 year-date and the monetary denomination.

Technical Note

The coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment the appearance of each coin may vary. 


The coin is housed in a classic black display case within a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
