2021 $1 Lunar Year of the Ox Ingot 1/2oz Silver Coin
One of few rectangular silver coins to be issued by the Royal Australian Mint, this half ounce silver release is the second in a Lunar series from Australia's national coin producer. Starting last September with the Year of the Rat coin, the very first in the Lunar Animal Race, the series continues for 2021 with the Year of the Ox. Though one prominent Aussie sporting identity apparently believes the "Ox is Slow but the Earth is patient...", the Lunar Calendar, rather, suggests those born in the Year of the Ox are honest, earnest, and hard-working. Struck to Frosted Uncirculated quality, each half ounce, 99.9% pure silver ingot is part of a limited mintage of 10,000.
