The third time the ox has featured in these collections, the mint once again sees a two-creature design for the silver coins.

The obverse of the 2021 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Ox Coins includes a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. The reigning monarch of England and the Commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth II is shown here in right-profile relief at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This bust of the Queen was created in July 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England. At the age of 33, he became the youngest designer ever to create a monarchs portrait for British coinage.
