Another commemorative coin made from 999 rate silver was released by the Australian Mint in 2009 with the image of Ox. The item is a part of very popular series celebrating the Lunar Calendar animals. This 50 cents Brilliant uncirculated coin has the perfect condition. The coin is the great valuable gift for those who was born in the Year of the Ox. In China and Southeast Asia it’s considered that the year of birth determines the characteristics of human nature. Every year in general has its own characteristics also, given by its lunar animal patron. The Ox and its calf are minted on the reverse of the coin. The animals are surrounded by finely elaborated mountainous landscape. The Chinese character meaning “Ox” is placed above the image, and the English name for the lunar year is at the bottom. The obverse is traditionally given to the Queen Elizabeth II. The legends arranging in a circle around her relief explain the country and the year of issue, as well as the weight and monetary denomination.
