The Lunar Series III collection catalogs images of each of the 12 animals in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, otherwise known as the Zodiac. The Zodiac follows a specific 12-year cycle that starts with the Year of the Mouse in year one and concludes with the Year of the Pig in year 12. For the second year of the cycle, the ox is featured. Oxen are admired in agricultural societies for a strong worth ethic and calm demeanor, traits that those born under the sign of the ox are said to share with the hard-working animal.
All of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Lunar Ox Coins available here have frosted design elements overlaying mirrored background fields. The coins are individually packaged by the Perth Mint with a black presentation case and a clear lid. The coin and its presentation case are shipped to you inside of a lunar-themed shipping box and come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity from the Perth Mint.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse field of 2021 Proof Silver Lunar Ox Coins. The Queen’s portrait shown here is the sixth-generation bust on Australian coins during her reign and the first since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders in the design. In this design, the Queen wears the George IV State Diadem Crown, a piece in the Crown Jewels that includes 1,333 diamonds in its setting with a weight in excess of 300 karats.
Two oxen are shown in the reverse imagery of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Australian Lunar Ox Coins. The design from Ing Ing Jong comes with an adult ox and its young calf standing in the dirt beneath the branch of a cherry blossom tree.
