2020 Lunar Year Of The Rat One Ounce Silver Bullion Coin

2019 Lunar Year Of The Pig 1oz Silver Bullion Reverse
999 fine silver 1oz 2020 Year of the Rat bullion coin from The Royal Mint’s Shēngxiào collection. Also known as the Lunar series, these coins are part of a twelve year cycle, inspired by the Chinese zodiac, its animals and their attributes. The Shēngxiào series began in 2014. Each annual release since has combined Chinese and British design elements and the Year of the Rat range is no different. These pieces feature a reverse created by P J Lynch that shows a whiskered rat amid blossoms with the traditional Chinese character for ‘rat’ to the left. Those born under this sign are said to be clever, adaptable and kind. While the rat is the first sign in the Chinese zodiac, this is the seventh coin in this Royal Mint collection. This edition is struck in 31.21 grams of 99.9% fine silver to the Mint’s bullion standard. These bullion coins have a fine textured background which visually distinguishes them from their proof counterparts. The obverse features Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, alongside the face value: £2 / Two Pounds. With a diameter of 38.61 millimetres, this 1oz silver investment coin will make a fun addition to your stack. As one of just 138,888 issued, it’s also limited edition. We’re offering these uncirculated coins in a protective capsule or sleeve and we’ll ship them free to UK addresses, packaged carefully and discretely.
