When it comes to gold and silver bullion coins, the importance of collectability cannot be overstated. More and more collectors have come to view bullion coins for their investment potential, and the collectability of coins in a series certainly aids in their price appreciation potential.

 

The Chinese lunar calendar has long been the impetus for famous coin collections. Today we bring you the 2021 Australia ¼ Oz Gold Lunar Ox Coin, the latest in a series of gold coins commemorating the Chinese lunar calendar by the respected Perth Mint. 

 

Struck with exactly ¼ Troy Ounces of .9999 pure gold, this coin is made to represent 2021, the “Year of the Ox.” People born in 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, and 2021 are represented on the lunar calendar by the Ox.

 

Many global cultures value these astrological personality assignments; people born in these years are known for their kindness, honesty, and reliability. Strong like the majestic ox, these men and women are potential leaders respected for their determination. 

 

Key Features: 

  • ¼ Oz pure ,9999 gold. 
  • Limited mintage: 30,000 coins. 
  • Obverse Depiction: Queen Elizabeth II as drawn by artist Jody Clark. 
  • Reverse Depiction: The powerful ox stands among bamboo trees. 

 

It would be a mistake to view the Chinese lunar calendar as a culture phenomenon limited to China.

 

In the United States, the lunar calendar is celebrated by millions of people. Your birth year comes to represent an aspect of your identity on the calendar, and many people believe that their assigned animal represents their personality well. Because there are twelve different animals on the Chinese lunar calendar, the series has a natural collectable element to it; collectors can even purchase a lunar display case to highlight their progress as they complete the larger collection over time. 

 

The obverse design of the 2021 Australia ¼ Oz Gold Lunar Ox Coin pays homage to Queen Elizabeth II, the monarch who lays claim to the Australian island. Here, her portrait by Jody Clark is used. Her representation of Elizabeth II is truly regal and queen-like; she wears her crown, earrings, and classic pearl necklace. This side also includes the face value of the coin (25 AUD), the weight and purity, as well as an inscription of Queen Elizabeth’s name and “Australia.” 

 

Flip the coin over to its reverse to see a truly mesmerizing depiction. A detailed and textured ox stands majestically on this side of the piece. Here, it stands proudly in the middle of two bamboo stalks in an obvious invocation of the Chinese culture from which the coin’s concept is taken. This coin side design emphasizes simplicity. Aside from the image, only the chinese symbol and translation for “Ox” and the date (2021) of the coin are shown. 

 

Whether you’re buying for yourself or a loved one born in the Year of the Ox, the 2021 Australia ¼ Oz Gold Lunar Ox Coin is an excellent entry point into the continued series of Chinese lunar calendar gold coins being produced by the Perth Mint.
