A landmark Australian coin program begins its third cycle with the release of the 2020 Year of the Mouse coins. With a tribute to those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar mouse in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972 and every 12th preceding year. People ‘ruled’ by the mouse are said to be smart, resourceful, adaptable and kind, possessing a rich imagination and strong intuition.

This endearing mouse design is flawlessly struck with proof standard combining a mirror-like polished background with delicately frosted relief and crafted from 99.99% pure silver.

The coin’s reverse portrays two mice foraging on husks of corn. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘mouse’, the inscription ‘MOUSE 2020’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

As an exciting new addition to the 12-year Australian Lunar coin series, each shipper in the Australian Lunar Series III will portray the story of how that animal came to occupy their position in the zodiac. The shippers of coins in the Lunar Series III will, when arranged in order, form a diorama depicting all the animals in The Great Race. This ancient myth tells how the Chinese zodiac came into being.
