Owner Comments:

This landmark Australian coin program begins its third cycle with the release of the 2020 Year of the Mouse. A perfect keepsake and tribute for those born in 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972 and every 12th preceding year. This endearing mouse design is flawlessly struck with our renowned proof standard combining a mirror-like polished background with delicately frosted relief and crafted from 99.99% pure gold.

According to Chinese mythology, the arrangement of the animals in the ancient culture’s zodiac was determined by a race. This event decided where the animals would be placed in the lunar calendar by the order in which they reached the opposite side of the river. In one interpretation of this tale, the mouse tricked his neighbour, the cat, who was said to have bullied the small creature, and rode on the ox’s back to win first place.

Year Of The Mouse Gold Design

The coin’s reverse portrays a mouse among stalks of wheat. Also included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘mouse’, the inscription ‘MOUSE 2020’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
