Ever since ancient times, the goat is known for protection, provision, and kindness. Every part of the goat is used; whether it's the meat for food, skin to keep warm, or its fleece for brushing tools. Nowadays, the goat might seem irrelevant since we have technology, machines, and factories to provide our every need. But the Chinese tradition still holds the goat to high esteem and does not forget the sacrifice of this kind animal so that people, their ancestors, may live and thrive. Those born under the year of the goat tend to be kind-hearted, artistic, and are likely to live under quiet circumstances. Giving the symbol of the goat as a gift wishes protection and prosperity over the recipient.
The 2003 Silver Goat is another installment of the Australian Lunar Series I. This series is made by the world re-known Perth Mint and is following the Chinese zodiac calendar. Many people use the Chinese zodiac as a fortune telling of sorts and as a guide for life's tough questions. As stated on the actual coin, this silver coin is 1 ounce pure silver and comes in a protective mint sealed capsule. The coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition, although there are proof-like qualities to it as well. The Perth Mint only produced 102,164 of these goat designed coins!
The reverse of this coin portrays a nanny goat balancing on rocky terrain with her young. The baby goat seems to be resting as the mother is keeping watch. The year, 2003, is inscribed next to the goats with 1oz .999 silver written as per usual underneath the animal. The obverse contains the one and only, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The coin's denomination, $1, and "Australia" are written around the rim. The Australian Lunar Series I is the perfect starter collection for anyone looking to invest and collect silver coins.
