The animals in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac appear once each time through the cycle on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The Perth Mint is the only mint that has its collections of lunar-themed bullion perfectly timed to the cycle of the calendar. While all mints that issue coins or bars with lunar designs feature the appropriate animal for reach date mark, only the Perth Mint’s program starts anew with the Year of the Rat, the year in which the Zodiac begins anew. Its first Lunar Series program launched with the 1996 Year of the Mouse and its latest, this Lunar Series III collection, also launched with the 2020 Year of the Mouse.
All of the 2021 2 oz Silver Australian Lunar Ox Coins issued in this Silver.com listing come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You can purchase these Year of the Ox coins individually inside of protective acrylic capsules or in multiples of 100 with a box.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse of the 2021 2 oz Silver Australian Lunar Ox Coins. This right-profile portrait of the Queen debuted on Australian coins with a limited release in 2018 and a broader release in 2019. 2020 marked the first time it appeared on Lunar Series coins as the second collection concluded in 2019 with the same design used since its introduction in 2008.
For the new reverse design on the 2021 2 oz Silver Australian Lunar Ox Coins, designer Ing Ing Jong again features two animals from the Year of the Ox. In her latest design, an adult ox stands beneath the branch of a cherry blossom tree with a young calf at its side.
