Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series III collection continues the rich tradition of minting incredibly designed bullion coins by portraying animal themes from the Chinese Lunar zodiac calendar. The reverse design changes each year based on the Chinese lunar calendar, and the 2020 reverse celebrates the Year of the Mouse. Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar mouse in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, and every 12th preceding year are said to be smart, resourceful, adaptable, soft and kind. Possessing a rich imagination and strong intuition, mice rely on very quick wits and a well-known nature to find opportunity for success in all endeavors.

Known for their quality and collectability, the Perth Mint Lunar series is a go-to for many Precious Metals portfolios. The original Lunar bullion series, these coins (beginning with the Series I launch in 1996) have become some of the most widely collected around the globe, as demand originated in Asia but spread to Europe and America as investors became exposed to the design and quality. In addition to the yearly design change, many investors love that the coins' select mintage limits create the potential for even greater investment return in the form of a numismatic premium appreciation. This series is so popular, the 1 oz Gold and Silver Lunars have become instant sell-outs each year!

The Perth Lunar Series 1 concluded in 2010, and Series II ended in 2019. These releases have been tremendously popular worldwide, with each year selling out quickly as investors and collectors claim the coins of all sizes.
