Details & Specifications

The Perth Mint has come out with the next installation in its Lunar Series II with the 2015 Year of the Goat 1/2 oz proof silver coin. This series focuses on the various signs of the Chinese Lunar calendar, also known as the Chinese zodiac. Struck from one half-ounce (0.5 troy oz) of pure silver, each these .999 fine silver coins feature a proof finish, meaning their raised details are frosted to contrast against a mirrored background. Only 9,000 of these coins will be minted and distributed by the Mint. They are also designated as legal tender with a face value of 50 cents.

The reverse design honors the Year of the Goat, which last occurred in 2003. The image shows three goats standing together in an open plain with vegetation in the background. The goat in the foreground leans down for a bite of grass while the two goats behind look toward the left. Their coats are long and thick, the texture of the hair depicted in great detail. "Year of the Goat" curls along the bottom rim while the Chinese character for "Goat" is placed above the goat furthest to the left. The "P" mintmark is placed to the extreme left against the rim.

The obverse is graced by Ian Rank-Broadley's right-facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty's name and the country of issue are inscribed along the top half of the rim. Along the bottom rim, the weight and purity, "1/2oz 999 SILVER," are inscribed to the left of the year-date, while the face value of "50 CENTS" appears to the right.

With a maximum mintage of just 9,000 coins, these beautiful .999 fine silver proofs won't be available for long! The Perth Mint's Chinese Lunar Series II remains a popular theme with collectors. Add the 2015 Year of the Goat 1/2 oz silver proof coin to your collection today!
