The Perth Mint has released a year of the rabbit silver proof coloured coin.
Celebrating the third animal in the zodiac, this 1oz silver proof coloured coin is an impressive tribute to the Chinese lunar Year of the Rabbit. Featuring a coloured design, the coin is struck to our celebrated proof standard combing a mirror-like polished background and coloured relief.
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.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 6,000 of the 2023 Year of the Rabbit 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin in individual packaging from a maximum mintage of 7,500.
Each coin’s reverse portrays an alert rabbit with its ears erect and another rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, the inscription ‘RABBIT 2023’ 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 rabbit 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, which tells how the zodiac came into being.
