Brisbane Bullion is proud to present the 2023 1oz Australian Lunar Series Rabbit Silver Proof Coin from The Perth Mint.

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’. The Rabbit is the fourth sign of the Chinese Zodiac. The rabbit is a particularly lucky emblem and those born under this sign are believed to have an uncanny gift for choosing the right thing. Well-respected and wise, people with ‘rabbit’ personalities are renowned for their excellent memories and good taste. They make honourable and successful business partners and are also conservative by nature. Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar rabbit in 2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be intelligent, creative, vigilant and compassionate.
