A rabbit with its ears perked up and another stretching toward a branch in its early stages of growth are depicted in gold on the coin.
In addition to the 'P' mintmark used exclusively by The Perth Mint, the Chinese character for 'rabbit,' the inscription 'RABBIT 2023,' and the year '2023' are all featured prominently in the design.
This 1 troy ounce pure silver 2023 Year of the Rabbit coin was made with great care and is exquisitely finished with 24 karat gold accents.
The long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series began in 1996 and features coins honoring each of the 12 animals represented by the Chinese zodiac.
As the ruler of the fourth year of the 12-year lunar calendar, the rabbit is honored on the 2023 coin because it is believed to bestow wisdom, originality, alertness, and compassion on those who are born in that year.
This coin comes in a traditional black display case with a clear lid and silver geometric design, and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
The case comes with an illustrated outer box that tells the tale of how the rabbit came to be the fourth animal in the lunar calendar.
