A prestigious collectable crafted from 1 kilo of 99.99% pure silver and featuring a 1-gram gold privy insert, this flawlessly struck coin is a rare release with no more than 388 available.
The unique tribute to the legendary lunar calendar portrays the second animal in the zodiac in vivid colour and enshrines the Chinese character for ‘ox’ in pure gold.
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.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 388 of the 2021 Year of the Ox 1 Kilo Silver Coin with Gold Privy Mark.
The coin’s reverse portrays a coloured representation of an ox with its calf. In the background, a village is depicted among mountains with a cherry blossom tree in the foreground. Also included in the design is a 1-gram pure gold privy insert portraying the Chinese character for ‘ox’, the inscription ‘OX2021’ 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 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.
