The One Dollar silver Ingot celebrates the 2020 Year of the Rat in the Chinese Lunar calendar.
The Rat is the first sign of the twelve-year lunar calendar; this reflects the traditional story of how the Jade Emperor had the twelve animals of the zodiac race across a river to decide what order they would go in. The clever Rat hitched a ride on the strong Ox and managed to come first.
People born under the sign of the Rat are also considered to be clever, quick-witted and resourceful.
The coin design has a clever rat surrounded by auspicious lychee.
The coin is presented in a capsule within a red box.
