The Zodiac follows the same 12-year cycle each time through and offers representative animals for each of the 12 individual years. These animals include, in order, the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. The animals appear in this order because of each one’s arrival to a meeting with the Jade Emperor.

On the obverse side of 2021 1/4 oz Gold Australian Lunar Ox Coins, you will find an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s effigy here is the sixth-generation portrait for Australian coins. In this image, the Queen is set in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head, a piece of the Crown Jewels commissioned by King George IV during the first year of his reign.
The reverse face of the 2021 Gold Australian Lunar Ox Coins comes with a depiction of the ox. This powerful male ox in this design stands amidst bamboo stalks. Oxen are bovines that were domesticated by humans as far back as 6,000 years ago to work in agricultural societies towing plows and hauling materials in carts.
Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint was the third branch facility of the Royal Mint of England. The mint is the only remaining operational mint from that system and is now owned by the state government of Western Australia.
