  • Description:

    The 2011 Rabbit is the fourth animal in the Chinese Zodiac calendar. The Perth Mint started the Australian Lunar Series II in 2008 and have continued to produce intricately detailed coins for the series. Each year, a new coin with a new animal design is produced to honor the Chinese zodiac calendar. Each coin is 1/2 ounce of pure silver and is presented in brilliant uncirculated condition. Each coin is encapsulated perfectly to protect the coin in transit. The Perth Mint only produces a certain amount of the coins every year, making the Series II appealing to coin collectors who enjoy a challenge and wish to diversify their collection.

    The rabbit is known to be sweet, kind-hearted, and fragile so it is only fitting that those born under the Year of the Rabbit mirror the rabbit's demeanor. Rabbits also create homes that they dig out of dirt and they are called dens. People born under the Rabbit year also keep very clean and tidy homes. They also are polite and well mannered, making them pleasant people to be around.

    Two rabbits are featured on the reverse side of the 2011 coin. It looks like one rabbit is the mother and the other is a baby. As rabbits are known to do, they are quietly enjoying a small meal of grass leaves that are surrounding the animals. The rabbits also have a proof-like shine to them, while the background presents a frosted, matte finish. The Chinese symbol for "rabbit" is included at the top of the coin and "Year of the Rabbit," is written underneath their thumping feet. As per usual, Queen Elizabeth II is displayed on the obverse side of the coin. She sits sideways, regally wearing an elegant crown, and is slightly smirking. "Australia," "2011," "50 cents," and "1/2 ounce pure silver," are etched around the Queen's face.
