THE STORY


The common expression “strong like an ox” isn’t just about physical strength; it also refers to the Ox’s mental fortitude. No matter how difficult a task may be, the Ox personality keeps going. While other zodiacs may rely on wit and cunning, the Ox achieves its goals through sheer tenacity and dedication. Its patience is legendary, but the quiet and introverted Ox will buck injustice to take command if pushed too far. It’s a fair-minded powerhouse that will honour you with an unwavering bond.

KEY FEATURES

 

  • Crafted in 18-karat gold. A prestigious addition to your lunar collection or gift for anyone born in the year of the Ox: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009—and this year’s newborns from February 12, 2021 to January 30, 2022.
  •  A must-have for any collection. The 12th and final coin in this ongoing series honouring all 12 Chinese zodiacs, and a great addition to any collection of gold, zodiac, cultural or art-themed coins.

DESIGN


Canadian artist Aries Cheung has created a stylized depiction of an Ox charging towards its Chinese character situated on the left side of the design. Beneath the Ox's feet, dust swirls about like auspicious clouds, their swirling contours echoed in the Ox's flank to bestow good fortune upon this zodiac sign. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
