More Info

The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle. Each year is associated with a different animal. Australia's Perth Mint started issuing series of Chinese Lunar Calendar Coins, in gold in 1996, with the Year of the Rat. The 12 year cycle of this first series ran from 1996 to 2007 inclusive, and all designs proved to be very popular. In fact, we rarely manage to buy any of the older years, which tend to be very hard to source.

As the eighth coin in the lunar calendar, many believe the goat represents peace and prosperity, harmony and growth. The number 8 is considered to be particularly lucky in China.
