Product Description

In Chinese astrology, the ox holds a significant place as one of the twelve animal signs of the Chinese zodiac. Those born in the Year of the Ox are believed to possess qualities such as diligence, determination, and reliability. Each animal in the zodiac is associated with specific personality traits, and the ox symbolizes hard work and prosperity.

Each 1997 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coin available here is protected by a capsule. The Gold Lunar Ox marks the second release in the Lunar Series I collection and represents the early stages of a collection that has gained immense popularity worldwide. Initially limited to a maximum mintage of 30,000 coins, Perth Mint eventually sold just 13,709, making it one of the scarcer 1 oz gold coins in Lunar Series I.


The obverse side of the 1997 Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrayal, designed by Raphael Maklouf in 1985, represents the third iteration of Her Majesty during her reign. In this depiction, she wears the George IV State Diadem, a design widely revered for its timeless depiction of the Queen.


The reverse design of the 1997 1 oz Gold Lunar Ox showcases a powerful ox. In this design, the mighty ox is depicted in left-profile relief as it gazes back over its figure. The ox stands on a field of grass, encircled by a beaded border.


The ox is a symbol of strength and endurance in Chinese culture. It is often associated with agricultural traditions and farming, as oxen were historically used as draft animals for plowing fields. In some Chinese temples and festivals, you can find ox imagery and statues, which are believed to bring good fortune and protection. Additionally, the ox is sometimes featured in Chinese art and literature as a symbol of hard work and perseverance.
