Australia’s 2021 Lunar Coin Pays Tribute to the Powerful Ox

Persistent, stubborn, honest, moody and quick-tempered — these are traits embodied by the Ox, a domesticated animal that has toiled in the fields of China for centuries. Seemingly able to endure almost anything, they seldom fear any hardships or difficulty. And, as a symbol of spring and fertility the ox is revered among the animals of China’s lunar calendar. And now it’s the theme for the second release in Australia’s Lunar Series III program that celebrates animals in the Chinese zodiac.

Struck in a half ounce of 99.99% pure silver, the 2021 Australia Lunar Year of the Ox Silver Coin depicts an ox with its calf while in the background a bucolic village can be seen nestled at the foot of a mountain range. Above the ox is the Chinese symbol for “Ox” and the branch of blossoming cherry tree, a symbol of feminine beauty and love in Chinese culture. The design is made even more fantastic thanks to the Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) finish that features razor-sharp details that are as fresh and crisp as they day the coin left the mint. You can even see the famous “P” mint mark just to the right of the mother ox!
