The Perth Mint issued the first of its 1 oz silver coins in a Zodiac design theme with the Lunar Series I collection in 1996. This program ran from 1996 to 2007 with 1 oz silver offered, but not the same array of other collections found today. In 2008, the Lunar Series II collection launched and brought expansion to the series as it ran through 2019. The Lunar Series III collection started in 2020 with an end date of 2031.
All of the 1 oz Colorized Silver Australian Lunar Coins in this product listing are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a protective plastic flip to house the coin. These coins are available with .999 fine silver through 2016 and boast .9999 fine silver in the coins from 2017 onward.

Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse side of the 1 oz Colorized Silver Australian Lunar Coins. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief, with most coins boasting the Ian Rank-Broadley design. This design was created in 1998 and shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
Various lunar animals are shown on the reverse of 1 oz Colorized Silver Australian Lunar Coins. The Perth Mint uses new designs of the 12 animals in each of its Lunar Series collections, capturing each animal in its associated date mark. Colorized lacquers are added only to this side of the coins and limited to the figures of the animals.
