First released for 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the 12 animals of the lunar zodiac. This 2023 coin celebrates the rabbit, whose rule over every fourth year in the 12-year lunar calendar is said to bestow intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion on people born under its influence.

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the rabbit became the fourth animal of the lunar calendar.  When arrayed together, the shippers of the 12 coins in the Australian Lunar Series III form a diorama depicting the legend of The Great Race.
