The Australian Lunar Ox coin is the second issue of the new Lunar Series III collection. The Perth Mint has previously issued a Year of the Ox design in 1997 during the Lunar Series I program and in 2009 during the Lunar Series II program. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2021 Australian Lunar Ox 1 Kilo Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
The Year of the Ox honors the sturdy, reliable farm animal that has performed duty in agricultural societies for thousands of years. The ox is associated with diligence, persistence, and honesty. Those born under the sign of the ox are sometimes said to be tardy in taking action, but industrious and cautious as well. It is said these people also tend to be conservative and hold their faith closely.
On the obverse of the 2021 Australian Lunar Ox 1 Kilo Silver Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief in a design that represents the sixth image of the Queen used on Australian coins. In the portrait, the Queen wears the George IV State Diadem Crown, earrings, and a necklace. This is the first effigy of the Queen on Australian coins since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders in the field. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read Elizabeth II, Australia, 1 Kilo 9999 Ag, and 30 Dollars.
The reverse face of 2021 Australian Lunar Ox 1 Kilo Silver Coins includes an image of the ox. In this case, two oxen are featured in the imagery. In the foreground, an adult ox stands in the dirt beneath a cherry blossom tree branch with a young calf standing nearby. The background field includes a small farming village. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include Ox 2021 and include the Chinese symbol for ox.
The Perth Mint issued its first lunar-themed collection in 1996 with the Lunar Series I program that ran from 1996 to 2007. From 2008 to 2019, the Lunar Series II collection expanded the options for investors and garnered greater interest for such collections from the Perth Mint. In 2020, the Lunar Series III program launched.
Your 2021 Australian Lunar Ox 1 Kilo Silver Coin is available with an individual protective acrylic capsule and arrives in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Perth Mint.
