The Lunar Series has been released annually since first being introduced in 1996. Silver coins were first available in 1999, introduced with the Year of the Rabbit design. Every coin in the Lunar series collection released by the Perth Mint has a unique reverse design in tribute to the Chinese zodiac lunar calendar. All 12 zodiac animals appear sequentially throughout the releases of the Lunar Series I, II, and III.


The obverse design of the Australian Silver Lunar 5 oz Coin Random Year Varied Design shows the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was initially designed by Ian Rank-Broadley and has been featured on silver coins dated between 1999 and 2019. All coins released in 2020 and onward feature a new portrait of Her Majesty the Queen designed by Jody Clark. Clarks design was created in 2015 for the Royal Mint of England and was introduced on Australian coins with the Lunar Series III release in 2020.


On the reverse of the Australian Silver Lunar 5 oz Coin Random Year Varied Design, there will be various animal designs. All coins feature unique designs created for each animal of the Chinese zodiac. These coins follow the Chinese lunar calendar sequentially.
