Brisbane Bullion is proud to present the 2021 1/2 oz Australian Lunar Series Ox Silver Coin from The Perth Mint's Lunar Series.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land. 

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. Calm, confident and determined, people born in the Year of the Ox reject get-rich-quick schemes and are prepared to work hard to make their fortune. They are said to make good leaders, can be inspirational to others, usually make good parents, and possess an innate ability to achieve great things. Intelligent, tolerant, easy going and self-assured, they are often regarded as dependable, patient and modest.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1/2 oz or 15.55 g of 9999 Fine Silver
  • Australian Legal Tender with government backed purity guarantee and face value of $0.50
  • Protective plastic capsule

The coins 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, along with the Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the monetary denomination, the weight and fineness.
