The Royal Australian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Australia and engages in the production of not only circulation currency of the nation, but also collectible and investment-grade bullion coinage. One of its more prominent collections is its Lunar New Year coins. These coins are traditionally available in 1 oz silver and gold as the primary options, though the gold series also offers fractional-ounce choices.
RAM Lunar New Year coins come with matching designs for the gold and silver coins in the BU range, while the proof coins sometimes offer a different take on the same animal within a given issue date. The coins are typically produced in low mintages, with the most recent 1 oz gold coins offering a total of just 5,000 coins for the release.
The obverse of the 1 oz Gold Royal Australian Mint Lunar Coin available here comes with a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s bust is always featured in right-profile relief on the obverse of Australian coins, with Lunar New Year options using either the 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley in which the Queen wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara or the 2015 design of Her Majesty with the George IV State Diadem Crown from Jody Clark. The Clark design debuted in 2019 at the Royal Australian Mint.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Gold Royal Australian Mint Lunar Coins, you will find designs representing one of the 12 animals from the Zodiac. These include images of the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.
