Introduction

As a long-term partner of the Perth Mint, Tavex is pleased to offer one of world’s finest minted silver bullion coins, the 2009 Australian Lunar Year of the Ox. The silver coin is part of Perth Mint’s praised chronological silver bullion collection, the Australian Lunar Series II, where each coin in the series is only minted once every twelve years in accordance with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. In addition, the most popular one-ounce version in the series has a limited annual mintage of only 300,000 pieces, giving the silver coin a considerable collector’s premium in the secondary market. The Year of the Ox silver coin contains 99.9% pure silver and is produced with a special minting technique that ensures the coin is in proof-like condition, meaning it has exceptionally shiny and mat surfaces coupled with the richest of detail. This bullion coin is truly a piece of breathtaking silver art suitable for collectors with an eye for beauty and those who wish to give their loved ones something really memorable and special.

History

Australian Lunar silver coin - Year of the Ox 

The Chinese lunar calendar is today used by many for Taoist cosmology. It is believed that, depending on the year of the zodiac when a person is born, a special relationship exists between the person’s personality and the animal that constitutes part of the Chinese zodiac. The animals in the zodiac are supposed to be of symbolic nature, where each animal is a representation of a specific group of characteristics and traits that can be found in every human being. There are twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac, each of them being celebrated once every twelve years. The year of the ox was last celebrated in 2009.  

Those born in the year of the ox are considered to be steadfast and solid. They carefully consider what the ramifications of their actions are, but once a decision is made they tend to stand by their conviction. It is believed that those born in the year of the ox are of great spiritual strength, irrespective of their physical appearance. This makes them capable of achieving great things, and their step-by-step manner in tackling issues makes them never lose sight of their goal. They have an eye for detail and are hard-working people who can endure a great deal on account of their patient nature. Those born in the year of the ox tend to be stubborn as they sometimes do not know when to back down. On the other hand, their steadfastness always means they will provide a friend with honest, solid and unbiased advice.  It can therefore be seen that the Australian Gold Lunar Year of the Ox coin is an ideal gift for whoever you love or respect, since giving a Silver Lunar coin means that you are showing affection by immortalising the person’s year of birth and particular virtues in pure and precious silver artwork.

Australian Lunar Year of the Ox coins – as rare as silver  

The Perth Mint introduced Australian Lunar Year of the Ox Series I and II coins in 2009. The next issue of the “Year of the Ox” will only become available in 2021, when the ox according to the Chinese lunar calendar, will once again make its move. The series I coins is offered in 1 kg, 2 oz, and 1 oz weights, while the series II was offered in 10 kg 1 kg, ½ kg, 10 oz, 5 oz, 2 oz, 1 oz, and ½ oz weights. The series I one-ounce coin has currently a mintage of 52,247, while the series II one-ounce coin minted in 2008 was sold out, reaching the maximum mintage limit of 300,000 silver coins. If the mintage for all Year of the Ox silver coins is included, then the total figure rises to 428,337 silver pieces. This is an extremely low figure compared with the mintage of other well-known investment silver bullion coins. For example, the American Silver Eagle coin reaches the corresponding cumulative mintage figure of the Year of the Ox silver coin every 4 days. Australian Lunar Year of the Ox silver coins are thus well suited for collectors since they are naturally as rare as silver.

Obverse

The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Australia’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Australia has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is the text “ELIZABETH II” and “AUSTRALIA”. Inscribed below the effigy is the denomination, the year of mintage, weight and purity of the coin, and the designer’s initials “IRB” – Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse

The reverse displays an ox with a baby calf standing in grass. Inscribed above is the Chinese character for “ox”, and to the left is the letter “P” which stands for Perth Mint. Below the oxen is the text “Year of the Ox”.
