  • Description:

    In just its second year of mintage, the Australian Lunar Series II introduced the incredible 2009 Ox addition to the 12-coin series. Although the ox used to be used for farming, it represents much loftier symbols. In Chinese culture, the ox is a symbol of diligence, persistence, and honesty. People born under the year of the Ox tend to be honest and straight forward, even if it causes tension in relationships. Like the ox, people born under the ox are career driven and tend to perform outstandingly in their field. Since the Ox is the second year of the Chinese calendar, it is also the second installment for the Australian Lunar Series II. The Perth Mint wanted to keep the silver coin years and the gold coin years at the same production rate so their answer was to have 2 coins per year for three years. Those 6 coins are split: one belongs to the Series I and the other belongs to Series II. The Australian Lunar Series I coins have a simpler design, wherein the Australian Lunar Series II showcase a stunning combo of proof-like images along a matte finished brilliant uncirculated coin.

    The Australian Lunar Series II 2009 1/4 ounce Gold Ox is guaranteed, by the oldest mint in Australia, to be .9999 pure gold and is in brilliant uncirculated condition. The obverse contains the stunning proof-like image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by famous sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, and is accompanied by the coin's denominational value. The reverse side displays a large ox, enjoying a rest on a lush green pasture. The ox is underneath the shade of a tree, its leaves fully detailed on the reverse. The reverse showcases the magnificent combination of proof and matte finishes, making the coin come to life. Underneath the oxen is the saying, "Year of the Ox". The famous "P" mint-mark is also inscribed on the coin, along with the Chinese symbol for "ox".
