Description

For 2009, the Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrated the Year of the Ox, the second animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

These superb quality releases are perfect for people born in "ox" years; 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997 and in 2009 ; who are regarded as creative, contradictory, self-assertive and sociable.

The reverse of each coin depicts an ox and a calf standing in a field. There are mountains in the background, and the oxen appear to be looking right at us. The Chinese character for "ox" and the inscription "Year of the Ox" also appear in the design along with The Perth Mint's traditional 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 goat.

With a lower mintage this coin is a harder one to find, so get yours today!
