2020 1oz Lunar Mouse Gold Coin

First Release in Series III for popular Lunar mintage

Gold Coast Bullion presents the 1oz Lunar Mouse Gold Coin (2020) from the Australian Lunar Series III by the Perth Mint. 

This is the 1st coin in a set of 12 and depicts the Year of the Mouse, the first of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. Each coin’s reverse portrays a mouse climbing stalks of wheat. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘mouse’, the inscription ‘MOUSE 2020’ and The Perth Mint ‘P’ mintmark.

Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The mouse is the first animal in the 12 year-cycle of the Chinese zodiac. People born under the influence of this sign are said to be highly spirited with sharp wit and the ability to adapt to any circumstances.

Struck from 9999 pure gold.
