Designed by Natasha Muhl, the reverse side of the new Year of the Goat lunar coins shows three goats as they graze in a field. One appears to be feeding on the grass while the others are attentively staring off into the distance. Behind these three animals is a tree with the Chinese symbol for the goat inscribed above. Below are inscriptions for the Lunar year which read “Year of the Goat.”
The coin’s obverse, as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, features the queen wearing her regal tiara. Above her profile image are inscriptions for her name and the country which reads “Elizabeth II Australia.” Below her are inscriptions for the coin’s weight, silver purity, minting year and face value. This information reads: “5 oz 999 Silver 2015 8 Dollars.”
Those who were born in the Chinese Year of the Goat, the 8th animal in the calendar, are believed to be artistic, kind-hearted, polite and clever. The Year of the Goat applies to those born in 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015. Aside from the coin’s artistic renditions and pure silver content, they can make for great gifts for friends or loved ones born in the Year of the Goat.
