Issued as Australian legal tender, the reverse of each coin portrays a mouse climbing stalks of wheat. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘mouse’, the inscription ‘MOUSE 2020’ and The Perth Mint ‘P’ mintmark.

The obverse of the coin depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination. These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Pig, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

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 opportunities for success in almost all endeavours.

Lunar Year coins are produced in a limited mintage of only 30,000 1oz worldwide each year with a different design each year making them rarer than the Kangaroos which have no limit.

Perth Mint coins come encased in a hard clear plastic case to help keep coins in pristine condition. Ainslie Bullion recommends leaving these cases un-tampered for the best preservation of value. The reverse of the 1oz, 2oz and 10oz coins includes a security feature in the form of a micro-engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.

The Perth Mint is Australia’s leading precious metal refiner. Backed by the Western Australian Government, The Perth Mint has produced the official bullion coin program since 1987. The Perth Mint also produces a large range of high quality gold and silver bars. All Perth Mint gold products are refined to 99.99% purity and all silver products are refined to 99.99% purity. Ainslie Bullion is a Primary Bullion Distributor for Perth Mint.

Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectible” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectible and need special storage. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event.
