1 Kilo Silver Australian Lunar Coins debuted from the Perth Mint in 1999. The Lunar Serie I collection was the first collection of lunar-themed coins in the world. Introduced in 1996, Lunar Series I initially featured only 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold coins with new images for each of the 12-animals of the Zodiac for new date marks.
By 1999, the Perth Mint had expanded the series to include 1 Kilo silver coins as well. This continued through the conclusion of the Lunar Series I collection in 2007 and through the entirety of the Lunar Series II program from 2008 to 2019. With the launch of the Lunar Series III coins in 2020, 1 Kilo Silver Australian Lunar Coins continued to be struck.
The obverse of all 1 Kilo Silver Australian Lunar Coins bears the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The fifth-generation Australian portrait of Her Majesty featured on the coins from 1999 to 2019 covering all 1 Kilo coins in the Lunar Series I program and the Lunar Series III program. 1 Kilo Silver Australian Lunar Coins in the Lunar Series III collection have the new sixth-generation effigy created in 2018 for the mint by Jody Clark.
On the reverse of 1 Kilo Silver Australian Lunar Coins, you will find varying images of the 12 animals for the Chinese Zodiac. Designs in the series have been created by various artists, with Ing Ing Jong creating all of the images on the reverse from 2013 through to the 2020 launch of the Lunar Series III program.
