Product Description

2020 Perth Mint Lunar Mouse 1/10 oz 9999 Gold Coin

Introducing the latest version from the Perth Mint Australian Lunar Series III, the 2020 1/10 oz Gold Lunar Year of The Mouse Coin! Currently offered at BuySilverMalaysia, this Chinese Lunar Year Mouse coin contains 1/10 troy ounces of .9999 fine gold. This coin, from the esteemed Perth Mint, is the very first release in the Lunar Series III. In 1999, the first 12 year series called Lunar Series I started being produced and continued until 2010. The second series, Lunar Series II, started in 2008, which caused Series I and II to overlap during a two-year span from 2008 to 2010. This adorable Year of the Mouse coin (also known as the “Year of the Rat” coin), notes the first release in the 12-coin Lunar Zodiac Series III. A brand-new animal image will be minted each succeeding year, following the pattern of the previous two series.

The New Lunar Year or Chinese New Year marks the beginning of a Chinese calendar year and each cycle is named after an animal.

Do you know how this came about?
One of the ancient folk story tells that the Jade Emperor decreed that the years on the calendar would be named after each animal, in the order they reached him. To get there, the animals would have to cross a river. There were 13 animals came to the race.
The Cat and Mouse were very bad at swimming, but they were both quite intelligent. They decided that the best and fastest way to cross the river was to hop on the back of the Ox. The Ox, being kind hearted and naive, agreed to carry them both across. As the Ox was about to reach the other side of the river, the Mouse pushed the Cat into the water, and then jumped off the Ox and rushed to the Jade Emperor. Hence, the Mouse was named as the first animal of the zodiac calendar. The Ox had to settle in second place.

Those born during the year of the Mouse (2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, and other years falling in the 12-year span) tend to be optimistic and full of passion. They are known to be hard workers with a flair for creativity.
