The One Kind of Mouse You WANT to Find in Your Home!

Back in the good old days, the sight of a mouse caused some women to panic and stand on chairs while their husbands futilely chased the little varmints across the floor with a broom. But the only scary thing about the mice we have available in this offer is the thought of missing out on one of these gleaming coins – the first release in Australia’s Lunar Series III program that celebrates animals in the Chinese zodiac.

Struck in two full ounces of 99.99% pure silver, the 2020 Australia Lunar Year of the Mouse Silver Coin depicts a pair of mice foraging on husks of corn along with the Chinese symbol for “mouse.” The little critters look absolutely adorable happily chewing on kernels of field corn. In fact, if those housewives of yore saw THESE particular little guys, they’d probably want to give ’em a saucer of milk instead of a smack with a broom!

The design is made even more fantastic thanks to a unique antiqued finish that really makes the design details stand out. The gritty texture creates dark and light shadows across the surface of the coin that accentuates the mice as they devour a midnight snack! Each coin was expertly crafted by the artisans at Australia’s famed Perth Mint, so every detail is sharp, crisp and dynamic. You can even see the famous “P” mint mark just to the right of the cute little big-eared rodents.

In addition, each coin available in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. What’s more, NGC has certified them to be First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means they were was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of their release. Each will also come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a special black display core.
