2021 50c Year of the Ox 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin

The Perth Mint's highly anticipated Australian Lunar III coin program is an array of superb silver coins celebrating the first animal in the zodiac, the mouse. Release as a magnificent three-coin set, a 1oz and 1/2oz silver proof coin, the coins feature original artistry portraying the kind-hearted ox.

Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar Ox in 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973 and every 12th preceding year are said to be kind, intelligent, honest and reliable. Admired for their strong work ethic, logical mindset and calm demeanour, they are recognised as great leaders.

Struck from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, no more than 4,000 1/2oz Silver Proof Coins will be released.

Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The coin's reverse portrays a stylised representation of an ox with its calf. In the background a village is depicted among mountains.  Also included in the design is the Chinese character for 'ox', the inscription 'OX 2021' and The Perth mint's 'P' Mintmark.

The coin's obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.

Each 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the mouse became an animals of the zodiac and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The shippers of future animals in the Lunar Series III will, when arrayed together, form a diorama depicting the ancient myth of The Great Race, which tells how the zodiac came into being.
