1/10th oz Lunar Ox Gold Coin

2nd release in Series III for the popular Perth Mint Lunar Series

BULLIONMARK is proud to present the 2021 1/10th oz Australian Lunar Series Ox Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Coin from The Perth Mint.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. Calm, confident and determined, people born in the Year of the Ox reject get-rich-quick schemes and are prepared to work hard to make their fortune. They are said to make good leaders, can be inspirational to others, usually make good parents, and possess an innate ability to achieve great things. Intelligent, tolerant, easy going and self-assured, they are often regarded as dependable, patient and modest.
