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.
The Perth Mint will produce no more than 30,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly collectable and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Each coins 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. A security feature in the form of a micro-engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
The obverse of the coin depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2020 year-date, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
