Launched in 2008, the Lunar Series II collection from the Perth Mint was the successful follow-up series to the original Lunar Series. The initial collection ran from 1996 to 2007 with distinct designs for each animal on the Chinese lunar calendar. The success of that collection led to the immediate design and release of new images for the 12-year Lunar Series II collection from 2008 to 2019.
The Year of the Rabbit is fourth on the Chinese lunar calendar and appears in that same position in both Lunar Series collections from the Perth Mint. The 2 oz Gold Australian Rabbit Coin in the Lunar Series II collection had an unlimited mintage when initially released, meaning the Perth Mint would strike the coins only through the end of 2011 to meet demand. The total declared mintage for this release was just 4,029 coins in total!
On the reverse of 2019 2 oz Gold Australian Rabbit Coins is the design of an adult rabbit as it sits next to a head of cabbage and a Chinese clay pot. There is an inscription at the top of the design field with the Chinese character for rabbit, a “P” mint mark for the Perth Mint, and the phrase “Year of the Rabbit” at the bottom.
The obverse face of 2019 Gold Australian Rabbit coins includes the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty features here in the fourth-generation design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint. Though it is the fourth design from British coinage, it is actually the fifth to appear on Australian coins during the Queen’s reign.
All of these 2011 2 oz Gold Australian Rabbit Coins are available to you today with a protective capsule to house the coin.
