2023 Year of the Rabbit Quadrant 1oz Silver Proof Four Coin Set
The Quadrant Rabbit set consists of four coins that each comprise one quarter of a circle. When arranged together the coins form a circle with a square in the centre reminiscent of the first currency of the Chinese empire. These ‘ban liang’ coins were first cast during the Qin Dynasty around 200BCE. The four contemporary releases portray a unified composition comprising four rabbits in a countryside setting.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver, each coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,500 of the Year of the Rabbit Quadrant 2023 1oz Silver Proof Four-Coin Set.
The top coin’s reverse portrays two rabbits bounding under cherry blossom. The right-sided coin’s reverse depicts upright rabbit among cabbages and sunflowers. On the left-sided coin, the reverse design features a rabbit crouching among nasturtiums and daisies. The bottom coin’s reverse portrays a doe and two kittens near their burrow with daisies and a cabbage. Each coin’s reverse includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse of each coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, its weight and purity, monetary denomination and the 2023 year-date.
The coin set 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 and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
Established on 20 June 1899, two years before Australia’s Federation in 1901, The Perth Mint was the last of three Australian colonial branches of the United Kingdom ‘s Royal Mint (after the now-defunct Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint) intended to refine gold from the gold rushes and to mint gold sovereigns and half-sovereigns for the British Empire. Swan Bullion Company is proud to be an authorised distributor for The Perth Mint’s bullion and numismatic products.
