Australia Lunar Coins

The Chinese Lunar Year coins are produced by both the Perth Mint and Royal Australian Mint to celebrate the new lunar year, they take many forms from proof to uncirculated, many will depict the animal associated with the lunar calendar and be selectively gold plated, colourised and presented in decorative packaging.  The lunar coin program has been run for many years by both mints and has seen many changes over these years when a design has run a cycle of 12 years.
