As 2020 turns into 2021, we officially transition from the Year of the Rat to the Year of the Ox. Although some bullion collectors will pay little attention to this shift, fans of the Chinese Lunar Calendar should know that 2021 is slated to be an important year for a few reasons. Most notably, the Year of the Ox means that people born in 2021 are likely to be strong-willed, determined, and honest.

Bullion collectors can commemorate the 2021 Year of the Ox with Perth Mint’s 2021 Australian 1/10th Ounce Gold Lunar Ox Coin. This is the latest edition to Perth Mint’s Lunar III Series, which has been tremendously popular among gold and silver enthusiasts.


This coin features imagery of the Ox, powerful and majestic, standing proudly between several bamboo sticks. Interestingly enough, the reverse of the coin depicts Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is actually backed by the Commonwealth of Australia.   


Key Features: 

  • .9999 pure gold. 
  • Backed by the Australian government. 
  • Minted in Perth.
  • Shipped in original Perth Mint capsules. 


Perth’s Lunar Series have been popular for several years. The history of the Chinese Lunar Calendar is one of unprecedented global interest. Although the tradition of the Chinese Lunar Calendar began in China, the message of the unique calendar has resonated with millions of people across most countries in the world. Even schools and communities in the United States commemorate the passage of the Chinese New Year with celebrations, parties, and more.   


This is one major reason why the Lunar III Series by Perth Mint retains such significant collectable value. When stored along with the other coins representing different patron animals of the Lunar Calendar, this series presents a spectacular conversation piece. The majestic creatures representing various years come to represent more than just these animals; they represent the very human traits that all people strive to cultivate.   


To some bullion collectors, the 1/10th Ounce Lunar Ox Coin also offers the opportunity to store relatively liquid value in the form of gold. Larger amounts of gold found in some coins makes it difficult to quickly liquidate in the case that the collector needs to turn their bullion into cash. But these small coins only hold a tenth of an ounce of gold each. While this is certainly enough to retain value, the lower gold content also makes it easier for collectors to sell individual coins without losing too much of their portfolio.   


The real value of coins like the Year of the Ox Coin by Perth Mint comes from their place in a larger selection of related coins. The Lunar Series III models its coins after the different animals represented in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. In years to come, a complete collection of these coins will become a valuable and cherished part of any collector’s safe.  But even by itself, the simple and majestic design on both the obverse and reverse of this 1/10th ounce gold coin is sure to provide it lasting value.
