The Chinese Lunar Calendar is well-known around the world, but is especially celebrated in Chinese culture. Each year of the calendar is represented by a specific animal, and it’s said that whatever year you are born in, you inherit certain traits of that animal. Whether one believes this theory or not does not take away from the incredible design and detailing featured on this coin release for 2023. Right now, the 2023 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Rabbit Coin can be purchased online from JM Bullion.

The 2023 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Rabbit Coin has been manufactured and distributed by the country of Rwanda, and has been struck in 99.9% pure silver. This specific coin features a special proof finish, which means that the designs shown on the coin are frosted while the background on each side of the coin is mirrored in appearance. When you purchase from JM Bullion, your coin will arrive in a protective plastic capsule.
This Year of the Rabbit coin joins many others in the Lunar Ounce Coin Series. This collection began in 2017 with the Year of the Rooster, and has since released new designs each year to represent the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The most recent release occurred in 2022 with the Year of the Tiger, which matches closely in appearance to the Year of the Rabbit coin for this year, with the exception of the pictured animal.
The coat of Arms of Rwanda is shown on the obverse side of the 2023 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Rabbit Coin. There are multiple inscriptions also included on this coin, and they are all written in the native language of Rwanda. The coin’s country of origin is marked by the “REPUBLIKA Y’U RWANDA” inscription shown at the top of the Coat of Arms.
The reverse design of the 2023 1 oz Proof Rwandan Silver Lunar Rabbit Coin features a brand-new design for the Year of the Rabbit. Although rabbits have been known to symbolize fear—since they are known for running from their enemies to protect themselves—they can also symbolize peace, good fortune, gentleness, and new beginnings. This side of the coin also includes its purity, value, weight, and release year.
