The Perth Mint launched its first Lunar Series of gold and silver bullion coins in 1996. The Lunar Series at the mint is in a third cycle as of 2020, with the previous programs running from 1996-2007 (Lunar Series I) and 2008-2019 (Lunar Series II). As time has passed, the mint has continued to expand on the options for investors and collectors in these series, including the addition of colorized coins.

Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of all 2 oz Colorized Australian Silver Lunar Coins. The most common bust of the Queen throughout the Lunar Series collections is the Ian Rank-Broadley design from 1998. Created for the Royal Mint of England, it was adopted for Perth Mint coinage in 1999 and featured on the 1999-2007 releases in the Lunar Series I collection and all 12 releases from 2008 to 2019 in the Lunar Series II collection.
Various different animals feature on the reverse of these 2 oz Colorized Australian Silver Lunar Coins. The lunar cycle follows a 12-year pattern with an animal assigned to each of those years. The Perth Mint collections offer a different design of the animal matching the date mark for each of the Lunar Series I, Lunar Series II, and Lunar Series III collections.
