2011 Year Of The Rabbit Proof Silver Coin (3 Coin Set)

2011 Year Of The Rabbit Proof Silver Coin (3 Coin Set)

In 2011, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Rabbit, the fourth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. These superb releases are perfect for people born in the Year of the Rabbit – 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011 – who are regarded as intelligent, articulate, compassionate and loyal.

Struck from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the 2011 releases a three-coin set (2oz, 1oz, 1/2oz).
The reverse of each coin depicts two rabbits nestling under foliage.  The Chinese character for ‘rabbit’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rabbit’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The Silver Proof Australian
Lunar Series II coins are housed in elegant black and red display cases, and are each presented in a colourful illustrated shipper.
