On the coin’s reverse is 2015’s bovine celebrant, the goat. He stands steadfast upon the rocky terrain of his native mountain habitat. From the ridges of its horns to the curled texture of its coarse hair, great care has been taken to provide an accurate portrayal of this strong willed creature. In contrast with the realistic details of the foreground elements, the distant mountainscape in the background has been depicted in a highly manner. Its simple rendering reflects the aesthetics commonly found in classical Asian art. Also incorporated into the design are the words “Year of the Goat” appearing beneath the image along with the “yang” or Chinese symbol for goat to the left of its namesake.
On the coin’s obverse side is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This uncanny portrait features the benevolent ruler in profile wearing her iconic tiara. It not only represents Australia’s ongoing allegiance to the monarchy but its pride in its status as a British Commmonwealth. Encircling this lifelike portrait is a ring of text which includes the queen’s title, the country of issue as well as the coin’s weight, purity, denomination and mintage year.
