1/10th oz. Australian Lunar Gold Bullion Coin Series I & II

1996 - Present




The first series of Australian Lunar Gold Bullion Coins was started by the Perth Mint in 1996, with the Year of the Mouse and ended in 2007, with the Year of the Pig.

The Series II Gold Lunar Bullion coins began in 2008 with the Year of the Mouse and are scheduled to run through 2019.

The Australian Lunar Gold Coins - Bullion Series I & II, have raised and highly polished finishes, because of this the bullion coins often have higher premiums added to their sale price.

The Chinese Calendar,
a
Brief History




In 2637 B.C., a Chinese Emperor named Huangdi invented the Chinese Calendar.

The Chinese calendar is based on a twelve-year cycle of astronomical observations of the sun and the phases of the moon.

Each year in that twelve-year cycle has an animal sign.  The animal signs are: mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

The Chinese believe each animal has a profound influence on those born under the year of its rule.




2018 - Year of the Dog


The birth years for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018.

Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be loyal,
amiable, kind and friendly.   (The Perth Mint)
