2015 Lunar Goat Silver Bullion Coin

1oz 2015 Perth Mint Australian Lunar Goat

The Australian Lunar series of silver coins epitomizes The Perth Mint's rich tradition of minting bullion coins portraying Chinese themes. The reverse design on this year's releases marks the 2015 Year of the Goat, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Goat - 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015, are regarded as elegant, charming and accomplished in the arts.

The Chinese character for 'goat' and the inscription 'Year of the Goat' appear in the design with The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.
