First issued in 1996 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series portrays the 12 animals of the ancient lunar zodiac. Annual designs featuring the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig are depicted in sequence according to the position they finished in the emperor’s Great Race. In fourth position was the rabbit, which is said to bestow intelligence, creativity, vigilance, and compassion on those born under its influence in 2023 and every 12th preceding year.

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the set comes in classic display case featuring a clear magnetic lid adorned with a geometric design. The case is housed in an illustrated shipper portraying the final stage of the race, during which the rabbit called upon its resourcefulness to successfully cross a river.

Each shipper in the series can be arrayed together to form a diorama depicting the exploits of all 12 auspicious animals.

Notes

The series had been announced earlier, but its release was delayed until 27 September 2022 due to a period of mourning after the death of Queen Elizabeth II; her effigy is on the coins even though they were technically issued when King Charles III was already on the throne.
