The new Lunar Series III program from the Perth Mint features some new firsts in the collections. Gold and silver bullion coins, in certain weights, feature a new security element within the reverse design field that is micro-engraved and only visible under a microscope. There is also a 1 oz platinum coin in the series for the first time ever.
On the reverse of the 2020 1 Kilo Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coin is the image of two mice climbing on a corn stalk. The duo has managed to peel back the husk to nibble away at the corn. These 1 Kilo Silver Lunar Mouse Coins have the aforementioned security feature from the Perth Mint.
The obverse of 2020 Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coins includes a new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This design from Jody Clark began to feature on Perth coins in 2019 and is the sixth portrait of Her Majesty to grace Australian coins during her reign. This design includes her neckline and shoulders for the first time since 1966.
