The Year of the Ox arrives second in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, right behind the Year of the Rat. The organization of these two, in particular, is interesting. The rat was a quick-witted creature who took advantage of the diligent work of the ox. Unable to cross a busy stream himself, the rat hopped into the ear of the ox and rode across the river until the moment the pair met the Jade Emperor.
The obverse of 2009 Silver Australian Lunar Ox Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The fourth-generation coin design from the Royal Mint of England, this is the fifth effigy of the Queen to feature on Australian coins.
