Australian Lunar

The silver Australian Lunar is issued annually by the Perth Mint and was introduced in 2000.

Purity & weight

The silver Lunar has a purity of 999/1.000 pure and weighs exactly 1 kilogram. Its purity and weight make it a proper bullion coin, acknowledged worldwide and easy to trade.
Because silver coins are sold under the VAT margin regulation, the silver Lunar is an interesting alternative for private customers who wish to buy 1 kilo of silver since they needn't pay 21% VAT on the purchase of this coin.

Design of the silver Australian Lunar

The obverse shows the image of Queen Elizabeth II, former Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms. Around her portrait you can find the inscription 'Queen Elizabeth II' on the left and 'Australia' on the right. At the bottom of the coin you can find the weight, the purity, the year of mintage and the face value, 30 dollars.
The reverse shows the image of the animal of the Chinese zodiac that corresponds with the year of mintage. The Chinese calendar consists of 12 zodiac signs: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat/ sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. In addition to that the design is adapted after every cycle. Mentioned on top of the coin you can find the Chinese character that corresponds with the zodiacal sign of that year. At the bottom you can see the inscription 'Year of the ...'.
