Gold "Lunar" of Australia - a series of investment coins, the release of which began in 1996. The theme of the collection is the eastern zodiac horoscope. The image on the reverse corresponds to the image of an animal, which, according to the Chinese horoscope, is the patron saint of one or another year.
The first series of Australian Lunars was produced from 1996 to 2007. Monetary units were so popular among investors that the Perth Mint began to mint a second series in 2008, which was no less in demand. From 2020, the release of the third began.
The 2015 Year of the Goat/Sheep Series II "Lunar" received a different design from the 2003 copy. The new coin shows a sheep with massive curved horns on a mountain range. Behind the animal, the outlines of the mountains are visible. At the bottom is the inscription "Year of the Goat," and on the left the Chinese character and the letter P are the sign of the Perth Mint. The reverse traditionally depicts a portrait of Elizabeth II and a face value of 100 Australian dollars.
