    Every year, eager collectors anxiously wait for the release of the new coin from the Australian Lunar Series II. This incredibly popular series is a follow-up collection from the Australian Lunar Series I, which was the inaugural collection by the Perth Mint. Australian Lunar Series II has been in production since 2008, when the Australian Lunar Series I began its descend of coin production. The Lunar Series keeps in line with the ancient Chinese Zodiac calendar, assigning each year to an animal for horoscope purposes. The Perth Mint also makes capsules that only fit the Australian Lunar series' coins so they are ultimately protected during shipment and storage, once they reach their destination. The Year of the Goat represents good fortune, prosperity, and protection. In ancient times, the goat was respected due to everything it provided to the people. The goats' skin was used to make "paper" to write on, its fur kept people warm, and its meat kept everyone fed; not one piece of the goat would go unused. Since the goat essentially kept their ancestors alive, the Chinese people today view the goat as a sign of good luck and protection.

    The Australian Lunar Series II 1/20 ounce 2015 Gold Goat comes protected in a mint-sealed capsule and is guaranteed to be .9999 pure gold. The reverse side of this coin highlights a large ram, with horns ready for battle. "Year of the Goat" is also represented, on the reverse, in English and in the Chinese symbol. The famous Ian Rank-Broadley side portrait of the Queen celebrates the Queen's aging through the years. This well-known portrait has been used since 1997 on all Commonwealth of Nations' currency coins' obverses. The obverse also is stamped with the coin's weight, purity, date of mintage, and the coin's legal tender value to prove the coin's authenticity.
