Why purchase this 2020-P Australia Year of the Mouse 1 oz. Silver GEM Proof?
The first release of the Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series III features the first creature of the ancient Chinese zodiac, the Mouse. The 2020-P Mouse proof coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver. Mintage is limited to 7,500.
Year of the Mouse Design by Perth Mint designer Ing Ing Jong
The reverse features two mice posed on an ear of corn, one stopped to nibble on a kernel, while the other searches for the perfect snack. Beside the image, the Chinese character for mouse appears, along with the inscriptions "MOUSE" and "2020." The "P" Mint mark of the Perth Mint is located at lower right.
Centered on the obverse is the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II created by Jody Clark. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA," "1 OZ 9999 AG" and "1 DOLLAR."
