Obverse

On the obverse of 1999 Australian Lunar Rabbit Gold Coins, Queen Elizabeth II graces the coin in right-profile relief, adorned with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This portrayal of Her Majesty was crafted by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. Inscriptions read ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 25 DOLLARS.

Reverse

The reverse of the 1999 Lunar Rabbit 1/4 oz Gold Coin showcases a rabbit seated on its hind legs, set against a backdrop of grass. Perth Mint’s Lunar Series signature style presents a single animal on gold coins, contrasting with silver coins featuring two of the same animal. The inscriptions read 1999, 1/4 OZ 9999 GOLD, and the Chinese emblem for the rabbit.

History

The Rabbit holds significant cultural importance in Chinese traditions and folklore. It appears in various legends, stories, and artwork throughout Chinese history. For example, the Moon Rabbit is a popular figure in Chinese mythology, often associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival. Additionally, the Rabbit is sometimes depicted as one of the guardians of the celestial palace in Chinese folklore.
