The Zodiac, or the Chinese Lunar Calendar, is a 12-year cycle that has a different animal assigned to each date. The animals are said to pass along characteristics to those born under the sign of a given animal. The cycle follows the same path each time through the Zodiac with the Year of the Rat first and the Year of the Pig last.

Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of the 1/4 oz Gold Royal Australian Mint Lunar Coins. The Queen has reigned over England and the Commonwealth since 1952 and the designs on these coins include one of two possible options. The 1998 design created by Ian Rank-Broadley featured on most Australian coins from 1999 to 2019. The 2015 design from Jody Clark features on the obverse of most Australian coins dated 2020 and onward.
Lunar animals are depicted on the reverse face of 1/4 oz Gold Royal Australian Mint Lunar Coins. The design element changes with each date mark and can repeat. The Lunar Calendar follows a 12-year cycle and it is possible for the Year of the Rat to appear twice, such as 1996, 2008, and 2020, though each one would be distinctly different even though the animal in question is the same.
