More Info

The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle. Each year is associated with a different animal and the lunar animal for 2015 is the goat (or sheep). Believed to represent harmony and growth, this lunar animal is very popular as it is the eighth in the lunar calendar. Many believe it also represents peace and prosperity, as the number 8 is considered to be particularly lucky in China.

The one ounce coins have a mintage figure of just 30,000 coins.

Australia's Perth Mint started issuing series of Chinese Lunar Calendar Coins, both in gold and silver, in 1996, with the Year of the Rat. The 12 year cycle of the first series of the gold coins 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.

The second series has proved even more popular than the first, with the one ounce coins being massively oversubscribed at the Perth Mint. 

The Perth Mint's 2015 lunar coins were released on 1st September, 2014 and we received our first delivery on 4th September.
