The ancient Chinese lunar calendar, which dates back beyond 2,600BC, is reputedly the longest chronological record in history. According to Chinese legend, Buddha summoned the animals to attend him before departing to the next life. Just 12 came and consequently each one was rewarded with a lunar year to preside over.

2015 Year of the Goat

The Chinese believe that these animals have a profound effect on the personality of people born under their influence. Thus, anyone born in 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991 or 2003 – the Year of the Goat – will likely be elegant, charming, artistic, gifted and calm!

The Year of the Goat, which occurs again in 2015, is celebrated on the latest coins from the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series II. The stunning quality of the Proof Issues make them perfect for all ‘goats’ to cherish.

Whether you’re thinking of buying these coins as personal keepsakes or as gifts for someone who was born in the Year of the Goat, don’t hesitate too long as mintages are exceptional limited.
