British Chinese Lunar Calendar Coins
Attractive Gold Bullion Coin Series
The UK's Royal Mint started issuing coins based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar in 2014, with the Year of the Horse. The coins make up the Shengxiao Collection.
The design on the coins changes each year to show the lunar animal and so far all the coins have been designed by British designer, Wuon-Gean Ho.
Until 2016 the coins featured the Ian Rank-Broadley fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This was updated from the 2016 coin to feature the fifth portrait, by Jody Clark.
The coins are issued in 0.999 fine gold and are available in 1oz sizes.
