Product Description

One of the most popular coin design concepts in the world comes courtesy of the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

Now, BGASC offers 1997 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coins to you for purchase online in perfect condition.

BGASC has the 1997 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coin available to you for purchase in perfect condition. The Mint State 70 designation is for coins that exhibit full, original mint luster and bear no detracting flaws.


In the obverse of the 1997 Australian Gold Lunar Ox Coin, you will find a depiction of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 1985 by Raphael Maklouf, this timeless effigy of the Queen captures her figure in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.


For the reverse face of 1997 1 oz Gold Lunar Ox Coin, you will find an image of the ox. Created specifically for this release, the ox is shown in left-profile relief with a muscular frame and its head raised as it looks back over its shoulders.


The Year of the Ox is the second in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. According to Chinese mythology, the ox was the second to arrive at a race of the worlds animals to meet with the Jade Emperor. The ox would have been first if not for the crafty mouse that hitched a ride on its shoulders across a raging river.
