The Royal Australian Mint, like many other major global mints, offers a lunar collection. Known as the Lunar New Year Series, these coins come in both silver and gold options. The gold coins offer 1 oz gold alongside fractional-ounce options that include 1/2 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz gold coins.
Each year in the Lunar New Year Series from the Royal Australian Mint offers a new image of one of the 12 animals on the Zodiac. As the Royal Australian Mint progresses from one series to the next in its Lunar New Year collections, the images of the animals change with each date mark in a given collection, and between match animal years on the Zodiac. For example, the Year of the Pig would get a new design in each successive collection.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of the 1/2 oz Royal Australian Mint Lunar Gold Coins in this listing. The bust of Queen Elizabeth II depicted on this face of the coins can vary and includes the potential fifth-generation design from Ian Rank-Broadley used starting in 1999 and the sixth-generation effigy from Jody Clark used as of 2020.
Lunar animals are featured in varying designs on the reverse of 1/2 oz Royal Australian Mint Lunar Gold Coins. The animals featured in the collections consider things such as a Year of the Horse design and a Year of the Mouse.
