The Perth Mint’s Australian Lunar Series started its third cycle in 2020 with the Mouse. The Perth Mint will now start the numismatic year in 2021 with the release of superb precious metal coins marking the Year of the OX.
These 2021 coins celebrate the Year of the Ox, whose rule over every second year in the 12-year lunar cycle is said to influence people born during 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021.
Struck to our world-renowned proof like quality standard, these Australian legal tender coins celebrate the Year of the Ox with inspirational designs for both Lunar Series collectors and everyone proud to mark their allegiance with this capable and clever animal.
Each coin’s reverse portrays a charming image of an ox and its calf with a cherry blossom tree, a symbol of love and beauty. The design includes the inscription OX 2021, the Chinese character for ‘ox’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin’s obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
This beautiful 1/2oz Silver coin is encapsulated, with mintage is limited to 300,000 worldwide.
