Each of these coins will ship in a red scalloped display box. In addition to the display box, you will also receive a decorative outer box and a Certificate of Authenticity to legitimize your coin, which is especially important since only 750 of these coins were produced.

The Royal Australian Mint created these coins with a unique domed appearance. This shape makes one face of the coin convex and the other concave.

Queen Elizabeth II is proudly featured on the obverse face of each of these coins. Around the image of Her Majesty, you will see the lunar calendar wheel. The rat is shown at the top of the wheel, and there are numerous engravings on this face, including “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” “2020,” and “100 Dollars.”

On the reverse of each coin is a rat surrounded by lychee branches. The image of the smiling rat was created to celebrate the Year of the Rat. The rat marks the start of lunar calendar cycle, as the rat was the winner in the legend that led to the creation of the lunar calendar. You will also find various engravings on this side of the coin, including “Year of the Rat,” 1 oz .9999 AU,” and the Chinese symbol for rat.

According to Chinese folklore, the Jade Emperor asked twelve species of animals to compete in a race across a river. Using wit, the rat was the first of the twelve animals to complete the task, earning him first place in the Chinese lunar calendar. People who are born during the Year of the Rat are said to be clever, witty, smart, persuasive, and talented.

The Royal Australian Mint created these coins. The mint is also the sole creator of all of Australia’s circulating coins. Located in Canberra, Australia, it is the first mint in Australia to not be a branch of the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
