Why buy this 2020-P $1 Australia 1 oz Silver Year of the Mouse - Lunar Series III Proof?
The Perth Mint begins its third Lunar Series with this stunning Year of the Mouse Proof. The mint's previous two Lunar Series were extremely popular among collectors, who appreciate the variety, the stunning designs, and the opportunity to complete a set in a reasonable period of time. This piece was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine silver and bears a "P" mint mark on the reverse. It is part of a mintage of just 7,500 pieces.
Adorable Mouse Design by Ing Ing Jong
The obverse features a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. The monarch wears earrings, a necklace, and her Royal Diamond Diadem, which she wears to the State Opening of Parliament in Britain. Her shoulders are open to the holder. The effigy is encircled by a rim frame in which there are several inscriptions. "ELIZABETH II" and "AUSTRALIA" are on the top half of the frame, while "1 OZ 9999 AG" and "1 DOLLAR" are on the bottom half of it.
Ing Ing Jong designed the reverse. Two mice are eating ears of corn. The Chinese character for "mouse" is inscribed over the English word "MOUSE" and the date, "2020."
