The Perth Mint and Australia Post are pleased to present this stamp and coin cover to celebrate the lunar Year of the Rat.
Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar mouse in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972 and every 12th preceding year are said to be smart, resourceful, adaptable and kind. Possessing a rich imagination and strong intuition, rats rely on quick wits and an enterprising nature to find opportunity for success in almost all endeavours.
Each coin’s reverse portrays two mice foraging on husks of corn. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘mouse’.
