2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, the fourth animal in the Lunar cycle. Known as the ‘Spring Festival’, the Chinese New Year is one of the most significant annual events not only in China, but the world over. If you were lucky enough to be born under this auspicious animal (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023) you are thought to be a kind and sensitive personality with great social skills! In Chinese culture, rabbits represent the moon and are thought to manifest prosperity, peace and luck. Much more than just a coin, the 2023 $5 Lunar Rabbit 1oz Silver Proof coin is fine example of numismatic design at its best!

Struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, two irresistible rabbits grace the large flan, drawing the eye with their amazing level of detailing. A stunning spattering of cherry blossoms, the symbolic flower of the Lunar New Year, have been selectively plated in rose gold, contrasting beautifully with the silver background. Within the foliage, collectors can spot the Chinese pinyin symbol for ‘rabbit’.
