Product Description

This scrupulously crafted proof coin offers just 188 astute collectors the chance to celebrate the Year of the Ox with pure platinum. A lustrous white precious metal, platinum is much rarer than gold; it’s estimated that all the platinum ever mined would comfortably fit inside an average home.

First issued in 1995 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the Chinese zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This 2021 coin celebrates the Year of the Ox, whose rule over every second year in the 12-year lunar cycle is said to influence people born during 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021.
