Each of the individual coins offered in this series comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The Perth Mint offers these 2 oz silver coins in the collection with an unlimited mintage.

The Year of the Ox arrives second in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The ox would have been first to the meeting with the Jade Emperor, and first in the cycle, if it weren’t for the mouse. Approaching a raging river, the mouse hitched a ride across the rapids on the study ox and didn’t jump off until the ox was nearing the meeting point. As such, the mouse arrived first and now appears first in the Zodiac.
The obverse side of 2021 2 oz Australian Silver Lunar Ox Coins comes with a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This bust of Her Majesty was created for the Royal Mint of England in 2015 by Jody Clark. This image was adopted for Perth Mint coins in 2018, with the Lunar Series coins finally adopting the design in 2020 with the launch of the Lunar Series III collection.
On the reverse face of the 2021 2 oz Australian Silver Lunar Ox Coins is an image of two oxen. Beneath the branch of a cherry blossom tree in this design, you will find an adult ox with its young calf nearby. The ox is a strong, diligent, and persistent, factors that made it suitable for use on farms as an agricultural work animal.
