The Australian Perth Mint has released a new 1 oz silver year of the mouse four-coin set which when put together portrays a single design celebrating the year of the mouse.

The Quadrant Mouse set consists of four coins each accounting for one-quarter of a circle. When arranged together the coins form a shape reminiscent of the first currency of the Chinese empire. These ‘
Ban Liang’ coins were first cast during the Qin Dynasty around 200BCE.

The top coin’s reverse features a mouse climbing a branch with a plum tree bearing flowers in the background, with a butterfly and falling petals included in the design.

The reverse of the coin to the right depicts two mice at the foot of the branch among grass, pebbles and half a pomegranate. One mouse is climbing the branch.

The reverse of the coin to the left features a mouse in front of a vine which bears a hanging bunch of grapes. Pumpkin leaves and vines are also incorporated with half a pumpkin visible in the foreground.
The bottom coin’s reverse portrays a mouse nestled among pumpkins and greenery eating pomegranate seeds from an exposed fruit.

The Perth Mint's ‘P’ mintmark is included in the reverse of each coin in this set.

Each coin obverse displays an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-broadley, along with the year, 2020, the monetary denomination, 1 dollar, legal tender, Tuvalu, and metal weight and fineness. 

Each coin is crafted from 1 troy of 9999 pure silver. They have a maximum mintage of only 1,500 pieces.

This incredible coin set arrives in classic display case with a clear magnetic lid. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
