These 5 oz Silver Lunar Mouse Coins represent the middle of the collection with two weights above and three weights available below.

All of the 2020 5 oz Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coins in this product listing come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Perth Mint. The coins are housed individually inside of protective acrylic capsules. The Year of the Mouse is the introductory design for the Lunar Series III program and matches the start point of the preceding Lunar Series I and Lunar Series II programs, each of which started with the Year of the Mouse as well.
The reverse of 2020 5 oz Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coins features Ing Ing Jong’s design of two mice nibbling away at corn. The duo has peeled back the husk to reveal the tasty morsels inside. The Year of the Mouse is not just first in the Lunar Series III program, but it is also the first animal in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The Perth Mint’s program is the only one available that aligns its design releases with the precise order of the Zodiac by starting its series on the first year of the lunar calendar cycle.
On the obverse of 2020 Silver Australian Lunar Mouse Coin is an all-new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Jody Clark, this design debuted on Australian coins in 2019 and now comes to the Lunar Series III collection. The right-profile portrait includes the Queen’s neckline and shoulders in an Australian coin portrait for the first time since 1966.
