2021 Year of the Ox 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin
The second year of The Perth Mint’s highly anticipated Australian Lunar Series III is marked by the release of stunning 1oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz gold proof quality coins portraying the next animal in the zodiac, the ox.
Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar ox in 2021, 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973 and every 12th preceding year are said to be kind, intelligent, honest and reliable. Admired for their strong work ethic, logical mindset and calm demeanour, they are recognised as great leaders.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, no more than 1,000 1oz coins, 3,500 1/4oz coins and 2,500 1/10oz coins will be released in this packaging.
The coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The coin’s reverse portrays a stylised representation of an ox among bamboo stalks. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘ox’, the inscription ‘OX 2021’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse of the coin depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
Each coin is presented in a prestigious red display case with a magnetic lid. Adorned with gold lettering and a
geometric design, the case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the ox
became the second animal in the zodiac, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The shippers of future animals in the Lunar Series III will, when arrayed together, form a diorama depicting the
ancient myth of The Great Race, which tells how the zodiac came into being.
