The obverse side of the 2008 Australian Silver Lunar Rat Coin features Queen Elizabeth II in an elegant right-profile portrait, reflecting the distinguished fourth-generation design from the Royal Mint of England. Crafted by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, this portrayal showcases Her Majesty adorned in a refined crown, a departure from earlier renditions. Inscriptions read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 1 DOLLAR, 2008, IRB, and 1 OZ 999 SILVER.


On the reverse, the 2008 1 oz Australian Silver Lunar Rat Coins exhibit a captivating scene with two rats amidst straw, set against the backdrop of pumpkins. Legend has it that the rat’s cleverness secured its place as the first sign in the Zodiac cycle, arriving ahead of all others at the Heavenly Gates. Inscriptions include 2008, and 1 OZ 999 SILVER.


The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series I, spanning from 1996 to 2007, began with the iconic Year of the Rat design, following the revered 12-year Lunar Calendar cycle. Transitioning to Lunar Series II in 2008, the mint introduced this exquisite Australian Silver Lunar Rat coin, marking the conclusion of the Lunar Series I and the inception of a new collection.
