The 12 animals featured in the Zodiac have been brilliantly captured on Australian coins from the Perth Mint since 1996. The images of the animals are distinct and unique between the silver and gold issues, with new designs introduced for each animal in each respective collection. In 2021, the Year of the Ox arrives with two new designs for the third appearance of the ox in Perth Mint collections.

Queen Elizabeth II is shown in the obverse design of the 2021 1/4 oz Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coin. The sixth-generation bust of the Queen was created in July 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. This right-profile portrait captures the Queen at the age of 89 and is the first one on an Australian coin since 1966 to include her neckline and shoulders in the imagery.
An ox is featured in the reverse field of 2021 1/4 oz Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coins. The ox stands amidst a field of bamboo stalks as its powerful figure dominates the design element. The ox is alert to any threat nearby with its head turned toward its side and back as it looks around for any potential harm.
