These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Year of the Ox, the second of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
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.
No mintage limit applies to the 1 Kilo, 5oz, 2oz and 1/2oz coins. Except for the 1 Kilo release, production of these coins will close at the end of 2021 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage.
A maximum of 100 10 Kilo coins will be produced on a mint-to-order basis. Similarly, production will close at the end of 2021, when the coin’s mintage will be declared.
The Perth Mint will produce up to 300,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size, it is highly sought-after and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure silver, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The coin’s reverse portrays a stylised representation of an ox with its calf. In the background a village is depicted among mountains. Also included in the design is a cherry blossom tree, the Chinese character for ‘ox’, the inscription ‘OX 2021’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse of the coin depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
The reverse of the all coins except the 10 kilo includes a security feature in the form of a micro-engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
