The Lunar New Year Series from the Royal Australian Mint is available with new designs for each of the dates in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. For example, while the Year of the Mouse and Year of the Ox offer distinct designs, so too does a repeat of the Year of the Mouse. A 2008 Year of the Mouse coin and 2020 Year of the Mouse coin will have distinctly different images.
All of the 1/20 oz Gold Royal Australian Mint Lunar Coins available in this listing come with an individual plastic capsule. The coins are offered from random years with varied designs. We use our discretion in selecting your product. Once your payment has been processed, we select a coin from our available stock. We cannot guarantee an individual coin, nor can we promise variety if you buy multiples. In that event, it is possible you will get matching dates and designs.
On the obverse face of 1/20 oz Gold Royal Australian Mint Lunar Coins, you will find an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown on this face of the coin in one of two effigies. Coins dated 1999 to 2019 are most likely to feature the right-profile bust of the Queen created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. All coins issued from 2020 onward are likely to feature the Jody Clark bust of the Queen in right-profile relief at the age of 89.
The reverse side of the 1/20 oz Gold RAM Lunar Coin bears an image of the lunar animal that matches the date mark. The 12-year cycle of the Zodiac features distinct animals, with new designs available each time the Royal Australian Mint makes its way through the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac.
