The Lunar Series III collection debuts with the Year of the Mouse and kicks off another 12-year cycle of brilliant silver and gold designs. In addition to the usual silver bullion, gold bullion, proof and colorized coins, the Perth Mint now offers a platinum bullion coin in the collection for the first time in Lunar Series history.
On the reverse of 2020 1 oz Proof Colorized Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coins is the image of two mice on a corn stalk. The mice are dining on the corn kernels within the stalk and the colorized lacquer on the coins brings the mice to life in natural brown hues with white underbellies. This design, as with all Lunar Series designs since 2013, was created by Ing Ing Jong.
The obverse face of 2020 Proof Colorized Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coins includes an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in right-profile relief in a design from Jody Clark. This sculpting of the Queen’s effigy is the first on an Australian coin since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders as part of the portrait.
