The 2009 Ox is one of the final installments of the Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series I; a coin series that was inspired by the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac is an ancient system put in place to tell one's fortune by the year that person is born under. Although the coin was minted in 2007 (which is stated on the obverse of the coin), 2009 is the actual year of the ox on the Chinese zodiac calendar. The Perth Mint only produced 52, 267 of these silver ox coins, making them the perfect collectible coin. These 1 ounce pure silver bullion coins come in mint sealed capsules and are brilliantly uncirculated with proof like qualities.
An ox is known for its size and stature so naturally the ox represents a large quantity of something (fortune, luck, crops, etc). People born under the year of the ox tend to be honest, patience, and accomplish tasks at a steady pace. One weakness that comes with being born under the ox is being poor at communication and boring. The simple design of the ox on the reverse of this coin is stunning. The ox itself is proof like amidst the matte finish of the rest of the coin. The date, 2009, is inscribed vertically on the left hand side of the ox and 1 oz .999 silver is underneath the ox's hooves. The obverse or front of the coin usually contains a portrait. In this case, the portrait is of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The denomination of the coin, $1, and "Australia" are also written, encircling the Queen's face. The 2009 silver ox is in high demand and those lucky enough to obtain one shouldn't hesitate at the opportunity! Get your hands on this silver coin from Golden Eagle Coin while supplies last!
