Each of the 2020 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Mouse Coins are packaged individually by the Perth Mint inside of acrylic capsules. These large 5 oz coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a distinctive design that is different from the gold bullion versions of the coin. The Perth Mint has an unlimited mintage set for these coins, meaning 5 oz Silver Lunar Mouse coins will be struck to match demand only through the end of 2020.
The Perth Mint’s Lunar Series III collection kicks off just as its Lunar Series I and II programs did with the Year of the Mouse. This keeps the Australian mint’s program in direct line with the cycle of the Zodiac as the Year of the Mouse is the first in the 12-year cycle. Silver options this year include 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, 1 Kilo, and 10 Kilo coins.
On the reverse of 2020 5 oz Australian Silver Lunar Mouse Coins is an image of two mice crawling on a corn stalk. The duo has managed to get inside the husk of the corn and are enjoying a nice meal for themselves.
The obverse of 2020 Australian Silver Lunar Mouse Coins includes Queen Elizabeth II’s latest effigy. This sixth-generation Australian design comes from Jody Clark and features on lunar coins for the first time. Her Majesty is in right-profile relief with the Royal Diadem crown, earrings, and the Victorian coronation necklace.
All weights in the Australian Silver Lunar Series III program, except the 10 Kilo coin, have a micro-engraved security feature on the reverse. There is a tiny letter within the Year of the Mouse design on the reverse that is visible only under magnification.
