With the Australian Lunar Year of the Horse coins minting at an end, the Perth Mint has created a new Lunar Year of the Goat coin series for release. The last time the goat was featured on Australian coins was in 2003, which was the last time in the Chinese Zodiac that the Year of the Goat occurred. The 2015 1 oz Gold Australian Goat coin features a different image than that featured on the Silver Australian Goat coins.

For more than a decade now, the Perth Mint in Australia has celebrated the characters of the Chinese Zodiac with special designs on commemorative gold and silver coins. The 2015 1 oz Gold Australian Goat coin features a lone, adult goat standing on a rocky cliff in the main image. As you view the goat, his head raised in vigilance, you can see the outline of a mountainous terrain behind him.
The secondary image on the Gold Australian Goat coins is Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Included on the coin is the year of minting, 2015, and the Chinese symbol for the goat.
On the obverse side of the coin is the feature image of the male goat. There is a tiny “P” stamped on the left side of the coin to indicate the coin was minted at the Perth Mint. On the reverse side, the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is surrounded by the words “Elizabeth II, Australia” above her head, and the weight, purity, and face value of the coin below.
All 2015 1 oz Gold Australian Goat coins produced at the Perth Mint are legal tender in Australia. The Perth Mint is the lone remaining facility opened by the Royal Mint of London during the 19th century when Australia was still a colony of Great Britain. Today, the Perth Mint bears the primary responsibility of minting coinage for use by the Australian government but also releases commemorative and bullion coins for collectors and investors.
Coins will be shipped in their original mint packaging and in brilliant unciruclated condition.
