Each of these 2015 1 oz Proof Colorized Silver Australian Goat coins helps commemorate the Year of the Goat on the Chinese Lunar calendar. The eighth animal of the Zodiac, the goat represents those born in 2015 and every 12th year going forward and backward in time. Those born under the sign of the goat are said to be elegant, charming, artistic, gifted, and calm.
On the reverse of the 2015 1 oz Proof Colorized Silver Australian Goat coin you’ll find the 2015 Year of the Goat design, complete with brilliant colorization for the three goats in the grazing herd. The male goat to the right has a dark brown; the female to the left has a white finish, and the baby goat has a reddish-brown coat color.
The obverse of all 2015 Year of the Goat silver coins features the Queen Elizabeth II effigy. Her Majesty is always featured on Australian coinage in right-profile relief with her name, the nation of issue, and face value included in the design field.
