The Australian Lunar series of silver coins epitomises The Perth Mint's rich tradition of minting bullion coins portraying Chinese themes. The reverse design on this year's releases marks the 2015 Year of the Goat, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Goat - 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015, are regarded as elegant, charming and accomplished in the arts.
The Chinese character for 'goat' and the inscription 'Year of the Goat' appear in the design with The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.
No mintage limit applies to 1 kilo, 10oz, 5oz, 2oz and 1/2oz coins. Except for the 1 kilo release, production of these coins will close at the end of 2014 and The Perth Mint will declare each coin's official mintage. Production of 1 kilo coins will cease at the end of the series.
The Perth Mint will produce up to 300,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first.
