Keep your collection going this year in advance with the 2021 Year of the Ox Perth Mint coins!

Perth Mint Lunar Coin Series

The Perth Mint began striking the Lunar Coin series prior to 2000. However, the first series began and overlapped with the second. This is because the Perth Mint did not start the first Lunar Coin series with the Year of the Rat. The Year of the Rat is traditionally the first year of the 12-year Chinese Lunar cycle. Therefore, if you collect the Perth Mint Lunar Coin series, you will notice that 2008 and 2009 overlapped with their programs! After all, the first collection could not go unfinished. 

The story the Perth Mint set out to tell with the Lunar Coin series is the ancient Chinese myth surrounding the animals themselves. Although the Chinese Zodiac is fairly popular in the Western world, not many know the story behind the lovely astrology. According to mythology, the Emporer ordered a Great Race through which the order of the Chinese zodiac was determined. The first 12 animals to make it to his party became the “mascot” for each year on the 12-year lunar calendar. Take a look at the Perth Mint’s video behind the Chinese mythology. In this video you will also see the story that you can own when you collect the complete Lunar Coin Series III.

THE CHARACTER OF THE 2021 YEAR OF THE OX COINS

For the most part, Ox personalities are known for being conservative, hardworking, determined, and responsible. Also, similar to the nature of the ox, those born under this sign are superstitiously believed to be headstrong. In 2021, the Year of the Ox is connected to the element of Metal, specifically Gold. Perhaps the Gold Ox of 2021’s destiny is to be as successful as they are persistent! Grab one of these 2021 Year of the Ox Perth Mint coins for your collection or an Ox in your life now. 

The Herd of Perth Mint Ox Coins

This year, the 2021 Year of the Ox Perth Mint coins feature two brilliant designs. On the silver 2021 Year of the Ox Perth Mint coin, there are two oxen walking together: a parent and its calf on a path. The gold and platinum 2021 Year of the Ox Perth Mint coins, however, display one mighty ox, standing mid-stride as though it heard something nearby. Perhaps it was the Mouse, asking for a ride to the party!
