Struck from 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, no more than 4,000 1/2oz coins will be released in this packaging.

Launching The Perth Mint’s highly anticipated Australian Lunar Series III coin program is an array of superb silver coins celebrating the first animal in the zodiac, the mouse. Released as a magnificent three-coin set, and as individual 1oz and 1/2oz silver proof coins, the first silver collectables in the 12-year series feature original artistry portraying the resourceful creature.

Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar mouse in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972 and every 12th preceding year are said to be smart, resourceful, adaptable and kind. Possessing a rich imagination and strong intuition, mice rely on quick wits and an enterprising nature to find opportunity for success in almost all endeavours.

Coin details
Each coin’s reverse portrays two mice foraging on husks of corn. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘mouse’, the inscription ‘MOUSE 2020’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation
Each individual coin and three-coin set is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the mouse became an animal of the zodiac and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
