Year of the Ox silver coin from the Australian Lunar series, 1/2 oz minted in 2021 by the Perth Mint.
Oxen, according to the Chinese zodiac tradition, are honest, sincere, discreet and never try to be the centre of attention, as well as being kind and very straightforward.
The design of the animal is magnificent: it appears on the cross, on a flat background with a tree branch protruding from the right side and a small valley with a wooded area on the left side. Right in the centre, and on an irregular surface, we find the ox, together with one of its offspring.
The detail with which it has been made is magnificent: we can differentiate the folds of its skin and fat perfectly. In addition, its face is very well done, and it transmits a tenderness accentuated by the look of its calf. The symbol of the zodiac and the year of issue are precisely on her face.
The face bears the traditional design of Queen Elisabeth II against a flat background. She appeared at an advanced age and had a crown with various, albeit fairly simple, decorative motifs. This contrasts perfectly with the wavy lines of the curls in her hair. Above it, the characteristics of the coin, the name of the monarch, the country of issue and its face value (USD 0.5).
The Year of the Ox coin of the Australian Lunar series is minted from 99.999% pure silver, has a 1/2 ounce and a diameter of 36.60 millimetres and a thickness of 2.30 millimetres.
