Arguably the most popular coin in the Lunar Series III Gold Collection is the 1 oz gold coin.

The Lunar Series III program debuted at Perth Mint in 2020. Each lunar collection at Perth starts with the Year of the Mouse, the first year in the Chinese lunar calendar, and concludes with the Year of the Pig, the last year in the cycle.
In the case of the Year of the Rabbit, it falls fourth in the cycle behind the mouse, ox, and tiger. This year’s 2023 Year of the Rabbit marks the return of the Year of the Water Rabbit, the first such appearance of this iteration since 1963.
For the obverse field of the 2023 1 oz Gold Lunar Rabbit Coin, Queen Elizabeth II remains in the design element. Her Majesty enjoyed a record-breaking reign that saw her on the throne of England for 70 years and 214 days. This portrait is the definitive, final effigy and was created in 2015 by Jody Clark.
In the reverse design of 2023 Australian Gold Lunar Rabbit Coins, the mint features Ing Ing Jong’s depiction of a rabbit. In this design, the rabbit sprints carefree through a field and almost appears to be leaping through the air in this freeze frame.
These 2023 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Rabbit Coins are available individually in protective capsules. Multiples arrive encapsulated in a sealed roll of 20 or in a box with five individual rolls of 20 coins each. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
