The Royal Australian Mint is one of several private and sovereign mints around the world issuing lunar-themed collections. These types of gold coin collections offer 12 distinctive designs matching the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac and the animals that appear in each one of those 12 years. Provident Metals now offers Royal Australian Mint Lunar 1/4 oz Gold Coins to you for purchase online.
When you purchase the Royal Australian Mint 1/4 oz Gold Coins from Provident Metals in this listing, you receive coins housed in individual protective plastic capsules.

The obverse of the Royal Australian Mint Lunar 1/4 oz Gold Coins features a bust of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. Her Majesty features in one of two possible designs on these coins. These include the Ian Rank-Broadley design that shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head. Alternatively, the coins may have the Jody Clark design of the Queen with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
On the reverse face of Royal Australian Mint Lunar 1/4 oz Gold Coins, you will find various images of lunar animals. The Chinese Lunar Calendar, or Zodiac, follows a 12-year cycle starting with the Year of the Rat and concluding with the Year of the Pig. The cycle then repeats with the Year of the Rat again. The coins have varying designs based on the date mark and its corresponding year on the lunar calendar.
The Royal Australian Mint is one of two operational mints in Australia, and is actually the younger of the two. The Royal Australian Mint was founded in 1965 with passage of the Currency Act of 1965. Located in Canberra, it is the official sovereign mint of Australia.
