RABBIT ASCENDING

Dating back thousands of years, the Chinese lunar calendar features 12 auspicious animals, each said to influence the personality of those born during its ascendancy. The rabbit, which oversees people born in 2023 and every 12th preceding year, is believed to bless its cohort with intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion.

YEAR OF THE RABBIT DESIGN

The coin portrays an alert rabbit with its ears erect and another rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. The animals are pictured in a bucolic scene featuring a picket fence, rolling hills, flowers, cabbages and three further rabbits. Also included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

CLASSIC DISPLAY CASE

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin comes in a classic display case with a clear lid and an illustrated shipper. When aligned with the other shippers from the Australian Lunar Series III, the illustration forms a diorama depicting all 12 animals in the order they completed The Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.

ABOUT THE PERTH MINT

The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint’s 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
