2023 Year of the Rabbit 1/2oz .9999 Silver Bullion 50c Coin – Lunar Series III
2023 Year of the Rabbit 1/2oz .9999 Silver Bullion Coin – Lunar Series III
These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Year of the Rabbit, the fourth of twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.
Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar rabbit in 2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975 and every 12th preceding year, are said to be intelligent, creative, vigilant and compassionate.
No mintage limit applies to the 1 kilo, 5oz, 2oz and 1/2oz coins. Except for the 1 kilo release, production of these coins will close at the end of 2023 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin’s official mintage.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure silver, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
Each coin’s reverse portrays an alert rabbit with its ears erect and another rabbit stretching towards a budding branch. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, the inscription ‘RABBIT 2023’ and the Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse of each coin depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, and the monetary denomination.
The reverse of all coins except the 10 kilo includes a security feature in the form of a micro-engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
