The Royal Australian Mint is among several global mints offering lunar-themed design collections. Like many others, the Royal Australian Mint issues designs that match the particular date on the Chinese Lunar Calendar with an image of the animal from that particular year.

Each of the 1/20 oz Royal Australian Mint Lunar Gold Coins available to you in this product listing comes with a protective plastic capsule. The coins listed here come from the Lunar New Year collections at the Royal Australian Mint and are chosen at our discretion after your payment has been processed.
JM Bullion will select your coins at random based on availability at the time that your payment has cleared. As such, we cannot guarantee a particular date or design in advance. If you buy more than one coin, please keep in mind that you could get matching coin designs and dates on the coins you receive.
The Royal Australian Mint offers fresh designs for each date mark in its Lunar New Year Series. These coins feature a singular design each year shared on the silver and gold coins. The animal featured matches the date mark and the date on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. For example, in 2020 the Year of the Mouse design was featured on the coins.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse side of all 1/20 oz Royal Australian Mint Lunar Gold Coins. The effigy of the Queen found on this side of the coins can vary based on the date mark, but all busts of Her Majesty on Australian coins are in right-profile relief. Coins available from 1999 to 2019 have the fifth-generation effigy with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Coins issued as of 2020 have the sixth-generation design with the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
Lunar animals from the Chinese Lunar Calendar feature on the reverse face of 1/20 oz RAM Lunar Gold Coins. The lunar animals featured on this side of the coin match the date mark and vary by each date.
