  • Description:

    The Australian Lunar Series II 1/10 ounce Gold 2009 Colorized Ox is the second installment of the Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series II, sharing the date with the second to last coin from Australian Lunar Series I. Being the oldest working mint, in Australia, the Perth Mint was deeply inspired by the Chinese zodiac calendar, since so many people world-wide use it for their fortune-telling. That inspiration led to an incredible first series, starting with the Year of the Rat. Collectors and investors alike were drawn in with the revolutionary technique of combing a brilliant uncirculated finish with the dimensional proof-like characteristics. Collectors also enjoyed that each coin is already mint-sealed in a capsule, saving them a step for future storage.

    The Australian Lunar Series II 1/10 ounce Colorized Gold Ox offers a different view of the amazing series. The Perth Mint uses a dual finishing system that lends to its unique matte/proof finish. Only this time,, instead of being proof-like, the ox has been colorized and is brought to life. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is depicted, on the obverse, with her beautifully aging lines delicately illustrated. Also, on the obverse, the coin's date of mintage, the gold purity and weight, are etched into the BU surface. The reverse offers a colorized portrait of a lone ox, resting from a long day plowing the fields. "Year of the Ox," the famous "P" mint-mark, along with the Chinese symbol for "ox" are all inscribed around the relaxing animal. The Australian Lunar Gold Series II contains significantly lower mintages, compared to its silver counterpart, leaving collectors more appealed by the Gold series. Even in the small increments, the amount of detail displayed makes this amazing series a reality for any budget!
