The Australian Lunar series of gold coins epitomizes the Perth Mint’s rich tradition of minting bullion coins portraying Chinese themes.These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Goat, the eighth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
As well as appealing to investors, these superb releases are perfect for people born in the Year of the Goat – 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be elegant, charming, artistic, gifted and calm.
The Perth Mint will produce no more than 30,000 1oz gold coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly collectable and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Each coin’s reverse depicts an adult male goat standing on a ridge in a stylized mountain scene. The Chinese character for ‘goat’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Goat’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2015 year-date and monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.
