This is the fourth coin in the Perth Mint’s Lunar III series. The previous coins, mouse, ox and tiger were wildly popular and a favorite of collectors. This coin has all the things you want in a collectible bullion coin-superior quality, great design, and built in demand as many collectors around the world love the lunar calendar coins.
The obverse side of this coin features Jody Clark’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. With the queen’s passing, coins with her image on them are in high demand as these are the last few coins that will have her likeness as future coins will have the image of King Charles III on them. In this effigy, the queen is wearing a tiara and her pearl jewelry. Above her head is ‘ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA’. Below her is ‘1/2 oz 9999 Au 50 DOLLARS’.
On the reverse is an image of two rabbits. One is standing erect appearing to sniff at the branch above their head. The other is sitting and looking off to the right. To their right is the Chinese symbol for ‘rabbit’. Under the symbol is ‘RABBIT 2023”. At the bottom right is the Perth Mint’s mint mark.
