Meticulously crafted from pure silver in flawless proof quality, this Year of the Ox coin from the 2021 Australian Lunar Series is beautifully enhanced with eye-catching colour. Portraying a charming image of an ox and its calf, each of the three coins features a different surface treatment: a stunning proof quality finish, selective colouring, or selective 24-carat gilding. The reverse design also includes a cherry blossom tree, the Chinese character for ‘ox’, the inscription OX 2021, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
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. These 2021 coins celebrate 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.
- Proof quality 99.99% pure silver
- Proof, coloured and gilded finishes
- A superb tribute to the Year of the Ox
- Extremely limited issue 1,500 pcs
Despite the nature of the Year of the Ox zodiacs, the New Zealand Mint’s Ox stands proudly amid cherry blossom foliage. 2021’s Chinese Zodiac animal is the Ox, the second animal in the 12-year cycle. Those born under the Ox sign are considered to be more on the modest and serious side but are also kind and highly logical. This silver coin is a fantastic birthday present for any silver collector or astrological fans.
