Description

The 2008 Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrated the Year of the Mouse, the first animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

These superb quality releases are perfect for people born in "mouse" years; 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008; who are regarded as ambitious, intelligent, meticulous and sociable.

The reverse of each coin depicts two mice on a bed of straw. There are two pumpkins in the background and the mice are both looking off to the right of the coin. The Chinese character for "mouse"; and the inscription "Year of the Mouse" also appear in the design along with The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark, the year and weight. As well as appealing to silver coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar mouse.

With a limited mintage this coin is a hard find, so get yours today before they run out!
