In the new Lunar Series III collection, the Perth Mint introduces a wide range of new features. For starters, while the collection still uses separate designs for its silver and gold bullion coins, there will be a repeat design in the form of a new bullion option. The Perth Mint is expanding the Lunar Series III collection to include a 1 oz platinum coin for the first time ever. This coin will share the design from the gold bullion version.
Another new feature in the Lunar Series III collection is the use of a micro-engraved security feature. The 1 oz, 10 oz, and these 2 oz Gold Lunar Mouse Coins all have a micro-engraved letter on the reverse side that is within the Year of the Mouse design. The micro-engraved security feature is only visible under magnification.
On the reverse face of 2020 2 oz Australian Gold Lunar Mouse Coins is a depiction of one mouse standing amidst wheat stalks. The stalks curve with the edges of the coins to frame the mouse, while the mouse reaches up the wheat stalk with its front paws.
The obverse side of 2020 Australian Gold Lunar Mouse Coins features Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy of Her Majesty was created by Jody Clark and began to feature on Australian bullion coins in 2019. This right-profile portrait captures the Queen wearing the Royal Diadem crown, earrings, and the Victorian coronation necklace. This is the first effigy of the Queen on Australian coins since 1966 to include her shoulders and neckline in the design.
These 2020 2 oz Australian Gold Lunar Mouse Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are available inside of protective acrylic capsules and have an unlimited mintage. The Perth Mint will issue the coins through the end of 2020 as long as demand exists.
