2020 1oz Silver Coin - Chinese New Year 

Chinese New Year is one of the most important celebrations for Chinese people across the globe. It is a time for  families to reunite, as well as honour deities and ancestors.

During Chinese New Year and other traditional, cultural and religious festivals, the Chinese lion dance is performed to bring luck, fortune and prosperity into a community.

Chinese folklore depicts the lion as a symbol of courage, stability and prosperity. Incidentally, lions are not native  to China. Dating back to the Han Dynasty (206BCE to 220CE) in China, the lion dance is traditionally performed  to music made up of beating drums, cymbals and gongs to fend off ghosts and evil spirits thought to be afraid of loud noises.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the  authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the Chinese New Year 2020 1oz Silver Coin.

DESIGN

The reverse of the coin features a coloured representation of a Chinese lion  dance with ancient Chinese coins, flowers and lanterns. Also included in the design are the Chinese characters, a common phrase  said to wish one a happy and prosperous New Year, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the  monetary denomination, the weight and fineness, and the 2020 year-date  are shown on the coin’s obverse.


PRESENTATION

The coin is housed in a clear  latex display case with a black  frame, packaged within a  beautifully illustrated shipper and  accompanied by a numbered  Certificate of Authenticity.
