History

The Year of the Ox

The ox rules every second year in the 12-year lunar calendar, which reset again in 2020 with the mouse in control. According to Chinese mythology, the order of the animals in the ancient zodiac calendar was decided with a great race across a river. Traditional storytellers say the magnanimous ox offered to carry the mouse across the water – and thus it was that on the opposite bank the diminutive creature was able to leap from the ox’s head and claim first place! The ox’s return will be officially welcomed during 2021 Chinese New Year celebrations on 12 February.

For adherents to the lunar zodiac, it is fortuitous to be born during the Year of the Ox, an animal revered for its valuable role in agriculture and food production. Kind, intelligent, hardworking, honest, strong and determined, the ox has many outstanding characteristics to recommend it.

According to Chinese astrology, the ox’s cohort is born during 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021. These people are likely to be reliable, trustworthy and gentle, while also being calm under pressure with the ability to show great leadership. They’re also said to be most compatible with those born under the mouse, snake and rooster zodiac signs.

The Perth Mint is a world distinguished mint and precious metals refiner that is located in the City of Perth, in Western Australia. The Perth Mint was founded in 1896 by Britain’s Royal Mint in response to the newly discovered gold deposits in Western Australia. Perth Mint’s task was to refine gold ore from the mines and to strike sovereign gold coins from the refined bullion. Between 1899 and 1931 the Pert Mint produced  a considerable amount of gold sovereigns which were disturbed in Australia  and throughout the British Empire to be used as circulating currency. British control over Perth Mint was relinquished in 1971 to the Government of Western Australia which then assumed ownership of  the  mint.  Today,  the  Perth  Mint  is  hailed  for  the exceptional  quality  of  its  world  class investment bullion coins like the Kookaburra and Koala silver coins, and the Lunar Series. The Perth Mint has been a member of the London Gold Market (predecessor of the LBMA) since 1934. The swan design, which is the Mint’s official assay stamp registered with the LBMA, is recognised internationally and was inspired by the Mint’s location in Perth, where the main river, the Swan, runs through the city.
