In recent years, a number of world mints have added colour printing to a number of their coins. Although at first we thought this was rather gimmicky, in many cases it does make for aesthetically attractive collectors coins, which are also great gift items.
Images show a variety of years and sizes for illustrational purposes. You will receive different designs of the half ounce coin
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle, each year in the cycle is associated with a different animal. The Perth Mint in Australia started issuing series of Chinese Lunar Calendar Coins, in gold and silver, in 1996, which was the Year of the Rat. We rarely manage to buy any of the older years, which tend to be very hard to source. We recommend that you buy this year's coins while we still have them available.
