Each 2021 1 oz Australian Silver Lunar Ox Coin available in this product listing at JM Bullion comes with its own protective plastic capsule and a Certificate of Authenticity from the Perth Mint. Gilded silver coins have .9999 pure silver content with a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied to select design elements.
In the case of Lunar Series III coins, the gilded application is limited to the animals in the reverse design element. For example, the previous Year of the Mouse release limited the layer of 24-karat gold to the two mice in the design. For this years Year of the Ox release, the Perth Mint applies this 24-karat gold layer to the adult ox and its young calf in the foreground of the design.
The obverse side of 2021 Australian Silver Lunar Ox Gilded Coins includes an image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. The Queen also wears earrings and the Victorian coronation necklace around her neck.
On the reverse face of the 2021 1 oz Australian Lunar Ox Gilded Coin is a vision of the powerful, dependable ox. The adult ox is shown in the foreground with a young calf at its side. The two are standing beneath a cherry blossom branch with a small farming village depicted in the distant background field.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 and was intended to serve as the third branch facility of the Royal Mint of England in colonial Australia. As of the 1970s, it is a state-owned entity of the government of Western Australia.
