The most popular coin series produced by Australias Perth Mint is considered to be the lunar series. The Lunar Series II follows the incredibly popular Lunar Series I collection, which featured designs that celebrated the animals that appear on the Chinese Lunar or Zodiac calendar. The Lunar Series II features fresh designs to represent a new 12-year cycle. The 2015 Australian Lunar Goat 1 oz Silver Coin features the 8th design released in the Lunar Series II collection and celebrates the Year of the Goat. Each of the coins contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver, which makes them highly collectible amongst investors and collectors of this series.
This beautiful coin has received a perfect MS70 grade by the NGC, which is the highest grade that a coin is able to receive. This represents the ideal minting of a coin; each has the highest quality original mint luster and an attractive, sharp strike. There will be no visible hairlines or contact marks on the coin. This makes these coins highly prized and sought after by collectors.
The obverse design of the 2015 Australian Lunar Goat 1 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was designed by famed sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and has appeared on Australian coinage since 1998. The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on Australian coinage since she took the throne in 1952, after the death of her father, King George VI.
The reverse design of the 2015 Australian Lunar Goat 1 oz Silver Coin was designed to depict the Year of the Goat. In the image, three goats are shown serenely grazing in a field under a tree. A ram, ewe and a youngster are shown. Also engraved on the coin are the words Year of the Goat beneath the depiction of the goat. Above the goats is the Chinese symbol for goat.
The Perth Mint introduced the Lunar II Series in 2008, with the release of the 20008 Year of the Rat coin. Those born in the Year of the Goat are said to be elegant, artistic, empathetic and calm.
