First year of Lunar Series III
These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Mouse, the first of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar mouse in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be smart, resourceful, adaptable and kind. Possessing a rich imagination and strong intuition, mice rely on quick wits and an enterprising nature to find opportunities for success in almost all endeavours.
Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the undisputed guarantee of its weight and purity. Internationally recognised and Highly Liquid.
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.
No mintage limit applies to the 1/2oz coins. However, production will close at the end of 2020 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin's official mintage.
