Perth Mint Lunar Series

Inspired by the ancient Chinese Zodiac, the Perth Mint Lunar Coin series honors the animals of the 12 -year Lunar cycle. The gorgeous designs of each of the 12 animals are prominently featured on the reverse of the coin. The obverse of all the lunar coins displays the profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II wearing her royal crown. The very first Gold Lunar Year series was initiated in 1996 with the introduction of the “Year of the Mouse” coin and ended in 2007 with the Year of the Pig. The coins in Series I contained .9999 fine gold. The second Lunar gold series began in 2008 with the release of the “Year of the Mouse” coin, this time with a different design. This series kept the same high gold content as its predecessor. Series II ended in 2019 with the release of the popular “Year of the Pig” coins. The “Year of the Mouse” coin will once again kick off a new series in 2020, with all-new designs for each animal. Each coin in the series will still contain .9999 fine gold and feature a brand-new Lunar animal design. 

Perth Mint Gold Coins produced within the Lunar Series are available in varying sizes which include the standard one troy ounce gold coin, as well as fractional sizes of ½ oz., ¼ oz., 1/10 oz., 1/20 oz., and 1/25 oz. Each Lunar Gold Coin comes encased in a special plastic capsule to preserve its quality. The coins come also come in special sealed rolls for larger bulk orders.

2003 Gold Coin design (Series I)

The obverse shows the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by various inscriptions.

2015 Gold Coin design (Series II)

The Year of the Goat gold coin released in 2015 displays the image of a goat standing on rocky terrain, its large curved horns providing an impressive outline against the mountainous background. The inscriptions featured on the reverse include “Year of the Goat”, the Perth Mint “P” mintmark, and the Chinese character for “goat”.

The obverse of the coin showcases the Queen Elizabeth II effigy along with the year and other various inscriptions.

Ancient Chinese Zodiac Calendar - The Goat

In Chinese tradition, the goat/sheep is frequently associated with gentleness and purity. Those born during the Year of the Goat, including 1979, 1991, 2003, and 2015, are believed to exhibit kindheartedness, stability, and creativity. These people tend to be shy and calm, but also possess determination and the ability to thrive in professional settings.
