Product Details

Introducing the 2008 1 oz Australian Silver Lunar Rat Coin from the esteemed Lunar Series I by the Perth Mint. This remarkable coin marks the second release of the Year of the Rat in this iconic collection. A limited mintage of just 300,000 coins makes this 2008 1 oz Australian Silver Lunar Rat Coin a rare and treasured addition to any collection.

Coin Highlights:

  • Arrives in protective plastic capsules for safekeeping!
  • Part of the Lunar Series I Year of the Rat collection!
  • Limited mintage of only 59,623 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.

  • Showcases Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
  • Presents a captivating design of two rats amidst straw and pumpkins on the reverse.

The Perth Mint has crafted an enduring legacy with its Lunar Series coin designs. The Lunar Series I, spanning from 1996 to 2007, commenced with the Year of the Rat, in alignment with the 12-year Lunar Calendar cycle. Following this success, the Lunar Series II began in 2008 with the release of the Australian Silver Lunar Rat coin, signifying the transition between these remarkable collections.

On the obverse side, Queen Elizabeth II graces these coins in a refined portrayal, reflecting the fourth-generation design from the Royal Mint of England. Ian Rank-Broadley’s creation in 1998 captures Her Majesty adorned in a more understated crown, a departure from previous depictions.

The reverse of the 2008 1 oz Australian Silver Lunar Rat Coins showcases two rats amidst straw, with pumpkins adorning the background. Legend has it that the rat, being the first sign in the Zodiac cycle, cleverly outwitted the challenges to arrive at the Heavenly Gates before all others.

Each meticulously crafted 2008 1 oz Australian Silver Lunar Rat Coin will be securely housed in a protective plastic capsule, ensuring the preservation of its pristine condition. As part of the Lunar Series I, this coin presents a unique portrayal of the rat, adding depth and variety to your collection.
