Celebrating the second animal in the zodiac, this 1oz silver proof coin is an impressive tribute to the Chinese lunar Year of the Ox. Featuring a coloured design, the coin is struck to our celebrated proof standard combining a mirror-like polished background and coloured relief.
Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar ox in 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973 and every 12th preceding year are said to be kind, intelligent, honest and reliable. Admired for their strong work ethic, logical mindset and calm demeanour, they are recognised as great leaders.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 6,000 of the 2021 Year of the Ox 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin in individual packaging.
The coin’s reverse portrays a coloured representation of an ox with its calf. In the background a village is depicted among mountains.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the ox became an animal of the zodiac and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The shippers of future animals in the Lunar Series III will, when arrayed together, form a diorama depicting the ancient myth of The Great Race, which tells how the zodiac came into being.
