  • ANNOUNCING ROYAL AUSTRALIAN MINT’S LUNAR – YEAR OF THE RAT BULLION COIN

    PAMP is pleased to announce a new bullion coin release – the Lunar - Year of the Rat gold investment series.

    Issued by the Royal Australian Mint and exclusively distributed by PAMP, the new fine gold investment series commemorates 2020 as the Year of the Rat in Chinese culture. Rich in traditional symbolism, the coin’s reverse-side design depicts two rats upon branches of an oak, a tree associated with the Year of the Rat. There are three leaves and two rats, numbers associated with the rat and considered fortunate or lucky. Accompanying the design is the Chinese character ‘鼠’, that represents the rat as well as the year of issue, metal weight and fineness.

    The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the text ‘ELIZABETH II’, ‘Australia’, and the face value of the coin – all of which are encircled by depictions of the 12 signs and moon phases of the Chinese Zodiac.

    The exceptional new release is 99.99% fine gold and is available in 3 variations of weight: 1 oz, ¼ oz and 1/20 oz.

    Exclusively distributed by PAMP, the new Year of the Rat gold investment series is uniquely appealing for both gift-givers and bullion enthusiasts alike.
