According to Chinese Astrology, people who are born in the year of the mouse are quick-witted, resourceful, versatile, kind, smart, and lovely. The Year of the Rat is the first zodiac sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. According to the Chinese zodiac story, in the competition held by the Jade Emperor to decide the zodiac animals, the quick-witted rat asked the diligent ox to take him on a ride to cross the river and jumped down before the ox crossed the finish line, so the rat won the race and became the first of the zodiac animals.
The Australian Gold Lunar Mouse 2020 Series 3 is popular because they are limited in production to 30,000 coins.
The Year 2000 1-ounce Gold Dragons, the 2007 Gold Pig and the 2002 1-ounce Gold Horses have reached their productions caps and are no longer being produced, so availability is limited to the secondary market and higher premiums sometimes develop.
By law, the Lunar Series coins have to display the image of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. When the series started in 1996, the official likeness of the Queen was younger. In 1999, however, Buckingham Palace changed the official likeness to a mature Queen, which is carried forward into the Lunar II series.
