We have been made aware that the majority of the Rabbit Rectangle Silver Proof Sets are going to the East and Far East, whence they will never return. That means that 1,000 or less of these sets will be available for the rest of the world! Consequently, we expect a very fast sell out at the Mint. If you want to be one of the lucky few to own this set, don’t delay! A sell out at the Mint was anticipated and has occurred. Four Different Coins Combine to Make One Cohesive Scene! There are four different rabbit portraits, one per coin, each with different colored bunnies: Large medium brown rabbit is ready for his afternoon nap. Two playful, adult white rabbits don’t follow them down the rabbit hole! A black rabbit looks ready to hop right out of the picture! Parent and young grayish-brown rabbits nuzzle in a windswept landscape. These four rabbit silver dollars form a single outdoor scene when placed end-to-end in the order described above. To highlight this tableau, the Perth Mint has developed an ingenious new presentation box that showcases all four rabbit silver proofs contiguously, thereby allowing display of the entire vignette while protecting the coins in an elegant, red and black case! The Year of the Rabbit – Most Cuddly! Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month. In 2011 we celebrate the Year of the Rabbit. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Rabbit (1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, and 2011) are said to exhibit that animals attributes. They are sociable, amiable, and artistic, and are often shy, soft-spoken and cautious. They are often noted for their elegance and good taste. Rabbits can be moody, superficial and self-centered, as well. This is the fourth annual release in the new Lunar Series II zodiac program that began in 2008. The rabbit is not the strongest animal in a physical sense of the twelve Chinese zodiacal signs; they are dedicated and sensitive. Rabbits are usually kind and sweet; this makes them popular people. Nobody ignores them, for they are good company and know how to make the best of themselves. Even though they are popular and loved by their friends and family, rabbit people can also be pessimistic. They are conservative and insecure, and that explains why most of the them don’t like changes. It is not easy to provoke Rabbit people, as they are calm. They don’t like to argue and enjoy quiet, peaceful lives. They are also sentimental, compassionate and loyal. One can do much worse than to have a Rabbit as a friend! Please see the article further below for a short presentation on the Cook Islands. Rabbits in Australia – A Tragedy of Unintended Consequences. Rabbits are not native to Australia – they are an invasive species, first introduced to the Island Continent 150 years ago. One Thomas Austin released 12 wild rabbits onto his property, Barwon Park, near Winchelsea, Victoria, in October 1859 for hunting purposes. He had asked his nephew William Austin to send him 12 gray rabbits, five hares, 72 partridges and some sparrows from England so that he could continue his hobby in Australia by creating a local population of the species. One theory as to why the Barwon Park rabbits adapted so well to Australia is that the hybrid rabbits that resulted from the interbreeding of the two distinct types were particularly hardy and virile. At the time Austin had stated, The introduction of a few rabbits could do little harm and might provide a touch of home, in addition to a spot of hunting. The rabbits proliferated explosively. With mild winters, they were able to breed the entire year. With widespread farming, areas that may have been desert, scrub, or woodlands were instead turned into vast areas with low vegetations, creating ideal habitat for rabbits. In a classic example of unintended consequences, within ten years of the introduction in 1859, rabbits had become so prevalent that two million could be shot or trapped annually without having any noticeable effect on the population. It was the fastest spread ever recorded of any mammal anywhere in the world. Since their introduction, the effect of rabbits on the ecology of Australia has been devastating. Rabbits are suspected of being the most significant known factor in species loss in Australia. The loss of plant species is unknown at this time. Rabbits often kill young trees in orchards, forests and on properties by ringbarking or girdling them. Rabbits are also responsible for serious erosion problems as they eat native plants, leaving the topsoil exposed and vulnerable to sheet, gully and wind erosion. The removal of this topsoil is devastating to the land as it takes many hundreds of years to regenerate. Annually, European rabbits cause millions of dollars of damage to crops. Technology Note – Color. The Perth Mint of Australia employs its own proprietary colorization technology, in which the color is actually sealed on the coin. The vibrant hues and precise execution of the technology create a stunning, full-color portrait on each coin. Four different vignettes of different colored rabbits, each set in an oriental-style outdoor setting depicting bamboo, flowers, other vegetation, and a mountain in the background. The Chinese character for “Rabbit” and the Perth Mint’s “P” mint mark halos occur. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England, in crowned profile facing right. This portrait, featuring Her Majesty wearing a tiara and pearl drop earrings, was executed by the sculptor Raphael Maklouf. The legend ELIZABETH II, the date of issue and denomination also appear. The coins are encapsulated inside an elegant, oversize luxury presentation case with a see-through lid that allows for the easy display of the coins, protected by a full-color outer box. An individually-numbered certificate of authenticity is included. Perth Mint of Australia. 4 Dollars (4 x One Dollar). 124.54 g (4 x 31.135 g). 47.60 mm nearly 2 inches!

To highlight this tableau, the Perth Mint has developed an ingenious new presentation box that showcases all four silver proofs contiguously, thereby allowing display of the entire vignette while protecting the coins in an elegant, red and black case! The Year of the Dragon – Most Powerful and Auspicious! Centuries ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month. In 2012 we celebrate the Year of the Dragon. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Rabbit (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, and 2012) are said to exhibit that animals attributes. While Dragons frequently help others, rarely will they ask for help. Others are attracted to Dragons, especially their colorful personalities, but deep down, Dragons prefer to be alone. Perhaps that is because theyre most successful when working alone. Their preference to be alone can come across as arrogance or conceitedness, but these qualities aren’t applicable. Dragons have tempers that can flare fast! Theyre driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. Theyre passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. This is the second annual release of Lunar Animal 4-Coin Rectangular Silver Proof Sets. The Oriental or Chinese concept of the dragon is much different than the European notion of this beast. Whereas in the West dragons are nearly always evil, fire breathing creatures of immense size and destructiveness, in the East they are beloved. Chinese dragons are benevolent, representing most auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, and floods. In yin and yang terminology, a dragon is yang (male) and perfectly complements a yin (female). The mythical “Chinese phoenix”. Is a mystical being, able to use an almost unlimited range of magical or supernatural powers. It is able to disguise itself as a silkworm, or become as large as our entire universe. It can fly among the clouds or hide in water. It can form clouds, turn into water or fire, become invisible or glow in the dark. It is interesting to note that the Oriental dragon’s ability to fly is a magical (not a physical) ability; unlike European dragons, Chinese dragons are rarely if ever depicted with physical wings. Historically, the dragon was the symbol of the Emperor of China. Many pictures of oriental dragons show a flaming pearl under their chin. The pearl is associated with wealth, good luck, and prosperity. In Chinese culture, the pearl also symbolizes perfection, which is only obtained through the highest forms of wisdom. As such, the pearl is retained in the clutches of the dragon, who, like the emperor, reveals great “pearls of wisdom” as it bestows abundance and prosperity upon its people. This coin features the most powerful and auspicious of all the animals in the Chinese Lunar Zodiac – the Dragon. The dragon is always the most popular animal, and always sells out. Previous Year of the Dragon coins now sell for many multiples of their issue prices. Don’t delay, tame your dragon today! Technology Note – Color. The Perth Mint of Australia employs its own proprietary colorization technology, in which the color is actually sealed on the coin. The vibrant hues and precise execution of the technology create a stunning, full-color portrait on each coin.

Are said to exhibit that animals attributes. They are loyal, honest, intelligent, straightforward and faithful, and possess a strong sense of righteousness. This large coin features a German Shepherd, an intelligent and protective breed that bonds strongly with its owner. Intelligent, Loyal – And. The German Shepherd Dog also known as an Alsatian or. Is a breed of large-sized dog that originated in Germany. The German Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog, with its origin dating to 1899. The breed is a working dog originally developed for herding and guarding sheep. Because of its strength, intelligence and abilities in obedience training it is often employed in police and military roles around the world. German Shepherds currently account for nearly 5% of all dogs registered with the American Kennel Club. Due to its loyal and protective nature, the German Shepherd is one of the most registered of breeds. The German Shepherd first gained international recognition following World War I, after returning soldiers spoke highly of the breed, and animal actors Rin Tin Tin and Strongheart popularized the breed further through the medium of moving pictures. As time progressed, their popularity increased gradually until 1993, when they became the third most popular breed in the United States. As of 2009, German Shepherds had climbed to the second most popular in the US. Additionally, the breed is typically among the most popular in other registries. The German Shepherd Dog’s physique is very well suited to athletic competition, so they commonly compete in shows and competitions such as agility trials. German Shepherds were bred specifically for their intelligence, a trait for which they are now renowned. They are considered to be the third most intelligent breed of dog, behind only Border Collies and Poodles. The Intelligence of Dogs. Author Stanley Coren found that they had the ability to learn simple tasks after only five repetitions, and obeyed the first command given 95% of the time. Coupled with their strength, this trait makes the breed desirable as police, guard, and search and rescue dogs, as they are able to quickly learn various tasks and interpret instructions better than other large breeds. German Shepherds are highly active dogs. And described in breed standards as self-assured and confident. The breed is marked by a willingness to learn and an eagerness to have a purpose. Shepherds have a loyal nature and bond well with people they know. However, they can become over-protective of their family and territory, especially if not socialized correctly. They are not inclined to become immediate friends with strangers. German Shepherds are highly intelligent and obedient and some people think they require a “firm hand”, but more recent research into training methods has shown they respond as well, if not better, to positive reward based training methods. And A Hard Worker! German Shepherds are a very popular choice for use as working dogs. They are especially well known for their police work, being used for tracking criminals, patrolling troubled areas, and detection and holding of suspects. Additionally thousands of German Shepherds have been used by the military. Usually trained for scout duty, they are used to warn soldiers to the presence of enemies or of booby traps or other hazards. Incredibly, German Shepherds have been trained by military groups to parachute from aircraft. The German Shepherd Dog is one of the most widely used breeds in a wide variety of scent-work roles. These include search and rescue, cadaver searching, narcotics detection, explosives detection, accelerant detection, and mine detection dog, among others. They are suited for these lines of work because of their keen sense of smell and their ability to work regardless of distractions. At one time the German Shepherd Dog was the breed chosen almost exclusively to be used as a guide dog for the visually impaired. In recent years, Labrador and Golden Retrievers have been more widely used for this work, although there are still German Shepherds being trained. A versatile breed, they excel in this field due to their strong sense of duty, their mental abilities, their fearlessness, and their attachment to their owner. German Shepherd Dogs are used for herding and tending sheep grazing in meadows next to gardens and crop fields. They are expected to patrol the boundaries to keep sheep from trespassing and damaging the crops. In Germany and other places these skills are tested in herding utility dog trials also known as HGH. This is the eleventh annual release in the Lunar Zodiac Series II from Australia! Each coins obverse depicts a mother German Shepherd dog. And pup lounging in the grass with Chinese peony flowers in the background. The legend YEAR OF THE DOG defines the theme.
