Description:

This Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II depicts the rabbit, the fourth of the twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar.

In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Rabbit – 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011 – are regarded as intelligent, articulate, compassionate and loyal.

Specimen Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in specimen quality.

Stunning Gilded Design

The coin’s reverse depicts an adult rabbit and a young rabbit which have been selectively gilded in 24-carat gold.  The rabbits are surrounded by foliage and a tree with creepers entwined in its branches.  The Chinese character for ‘rabbit’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rabbit’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
