Buy the 2015 Australian Lunar Year of the Goat Half Ounce gold coins.
Issued by the Perth Mint, these uncirculated bullion coins come in protective capsules.
These coins are sold as investment products.
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.
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the inscription:
ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1/2 oz 9999 GOLD 2015 50 DOLLARS
Designed by engraver, Natasha Muhl, the reverse of the coin shows an adult male goat standing on a ridge on a mountain. It also shows the Chinese character for 'goat', as well as the inscription ‘Year of the Goat’.
|Actual Gold Weight||0.50 troy oz|
|Obverse Designer||Ian Rank-Broadley|
