On the reverse face of 2023 1 oz Proof Silver Lunar Rabbit Opal Coins, there is a rabbit design made from opal. The opal is set against a black backdrop, which helps to highlight its beautiful colors.

2023 brings us the fourth animal of the Lunar cycle, the rabbit. This auspicious creature is known for its compassion, creativity, and gentle nature. If you were born in the Year of the Rabbit, it is believed that you too could possess these qualities. The lunar animals are a feature of the Chinese Calendar, which is used to mark important events and holidays in China. This includes the Chinese New Year, which in 2023 begins on January 22. Celebrations last several weeks and will culminate in the Lantern Festival on February 5, 2023.
