About The Coin
New Zealand Mint is releasing four beautiful Lunar coins to celebrate the Year of the Goat 2015.
The Goat is the eighth animal in the twelve year Zodiac cycle. Symbolising such character traits as creativity, intelligence, dependability, and calmness, those born during the Year of the Goat love to dream and ponder. Those born during this Lunar Year are often quiet of personality and very fond of nature.
This coin face features a relief engraved Goat perched on a steep rocky mountainside in rural New Zealand. Silhouetted against a dramatic sky, the grandeur of the altitude and panoramic view may be felt in the dynamic moment captured on this coin.
This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Lunar Year of the Goat 2015 coins are each packaged in very high quality contemporary style inner and outer packaging, making them ideal for gifting. The Silver coins are packaged in Perspex coin cases, with high quality outer packaging.
