For the Year of the Goat, the Perth Mint released two major design themes for its silver and gold coins. However, there are a limited issue of other designs in the Year of the Goat collection used for special releases in the series.
In this 2015 Colorized Australian Silver Goat Rectangle 4-Coin Set you’ll find four, individual 1 oz. silver coins with a different design on the reverse side of each coin. Each of the Year of the Goat images has brilliant colorization on the animals featured in the design. Among the designs of the coins are a family of three goats in white wool, two black goats, two goats with long coats, and a cluster of three on a mountain’s edge.
On the reverse of each coin in the 2015 Colorized Australian Silver Goat Rectangle 4-Coin Set are the designs mentioned above. The standard engraving of “Year of the Goat” is not included on these bars, which have only the weight, purity, and metal content engraved along with the “P” mint mark.
The obverse of each of these rectangular coins you’ll find Raphael Maklouf’s right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Unlike other designs, his depiction of Her Majesty features a larger crown and pearl necklace around her neck.
Perth Mint is a state-owned entity of Western Australia. Originally opened as part of the Royal Mint system under British control, today it operates independently of the Royal Australian Mint, which was established in 1965.
