This 2023 coin release for the Year of the Rabbit joins many others in the Lunar Ounce Coin collection. This series began in 2017 with the Year of the Rooster coin. Since then, new designs have been released each year to represent animals from the Chinese Lunar Calendar, including the most recent release in 2022 for the Year of the Tiger. In general, the designs in this collection have been rather consistent, with the exception of the animal that is being featured each year.
The obverse of the 2023 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Lunar Rabbit Coin shows the Coat of Arms of Rwanda. Multiple inscriptions are also included on this side of the coin, and they have all been written in the Rwandan native language. The coin’s country of origin is also included on this side, which has been written as the following: “REPUBLIKA Y’U RWANDA”.
On the reverse of the 2023 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Lunar Rabbit Coin is a new design for the Year of the Rabbit. Though rabbits have been known to represent fear, since they are famous for running from their enemies to protect themselves, they can also represent good fortune, peace, gentleness, and new beginnings. The purity, weight, value, and release year are also included on this side of the coin.
