Though the rabbit may seem unassuming and reserved, it is actually considered the luckiest of all twelve Lunar animals. The rabbit holds a special place within Chinese culture, in part because of its association with the moon. While Western folk lore describes the man in the moon, in the Eastern tradition it is the rabbit that appears across the lunar surface. If you were born in the Year of the Rabbit, then 2023 could be your lucky year. For reference, previous rabbit years include 1903, 1915 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, and 2011.
The obverse of 2023 New Zealand Silver Year of the Rabbit Coins contains a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley, we see Her Majesty in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Inscriptions are also included on the obverse that read Elizabeth II, Niue, 2023, Two Dollars.
On the reverse side of 2023 1 oz Silver Year of the Rabbit Coins there is a beautiful depiction of a rabbit. In this design, the rabbit faces to the left with its head turned in the other direction. The rabbit is colored in blue and pink, which are considered its lucky colors. This design is complimented by a beautiful mirrored proof background that includes various Lunar motifs. Inscriptions read Year of the Rabbit, 1 oz .999 Fine Silver.
