Silver Kilo 2023 Year of the Rabbit, RAM, Coin from Australia - detailed information

The Australian one kilo silver piece (abbreviated as 1 kg and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This proof one-kilo silver coin with a face value of $30 was issued as part of the Lunar Series of coins to mark the 2023 Chinese Year of the Rabbit (22 January 2023 to 9 February 2023).

The Mint says about it:
The auspicious Rabbit is the fourth sign in the Lunar Calendar. In 2023, the Royal Australian Mint honours the gentle, noble and lovely people born under this sign with this coin.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Kilo 2023 Year of the Rabbit, RAM - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2023 · 30 DOLLARS ·.

The effigy, legend and face value are in a small circle, surrounded by a decorative border.

Around the rim outside that circle, a "Lunar Calendar Wheel": the twelve animals of the Lunar Calendar walking counter-clockwise: rat, pig, dog, rooster, monkey, goat, horse, snake, dragon, rabbit, tiger and an ox; the rabbit is on top.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2023 · 30 DOLLARS ·

The reverse of the coin shows a rabbit surrounded by plantain lilies, enclosing a crescent-shaped clear space with the inscriptions.

Below that, the precious metal content: 1 kg .999 Ag (one kilogram of 99.9% silver; Ag is abbreviated from the Latin "Argentum" and is used internationally on silver bullion coinage).

The designer's initials BS (for Bronwyn Scott) are on the left.

The face value and the date of issue are on the obverse.
