Quick Overview

As the Chinese Lunar Calendar ushers in the Year of the Goat,
the Royal Australian Mint’s tetra-decagon lunar program
continued with its fourth annual release. This unique coin shape
is used exclusively in this series, which generates excitement in
the Chinese New Year gift market and to lunar coin collectors

Details

The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a twelve-year cycle. Each year is represented by a different animal with its own distinct personality. People born within each lunar year are believed to possess the qualities of that year’s animal, using those traits to achieve success and happiness throughout life.

On 19 February 2015, the Chinese Lunar Calendar welcomed the Year of the Goat. People born under this sign are the most creative souls, and are known to be gentle, charming, sensitive, curious and intelligent. They are also said to possess a special sensitivity to art, beauty and faith, with the wisdom to acquire everything needed for a balanced life. Coins are a traditional gift at Chinese New Year celebrations, and are beloved keepsakes for many people throughout the world.

To enhance the spirit of gift giving at this time, the Royal Australian Mint released a special 99.9% pure silver 50 cent coin which is presented in a capsule and complete with an attactive presentation box with a certificate of authenticity. Only 10,000 of these coins were made
