Released by the Royal Australian Mint is this NCLT Copper-nickel 14 sided coin. It is the first 50 cent Lunar Year commemorative and is the first 14 sided Tetra-Decagon coin. This is the only RAM 50 cent series with this shaped coin. The coin was released in a folding coincard.
A limited number were released in a special box encased in a numbered perspex stand in the shape of Australia.
As the Chinese Lunar Calendar ushers in the Year of the Dragon, the innovative tetra-decagon series begins with its first annual release. The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a twelve-year cycle. Each cycle is represented by a different animal, each with its own distinct personality. People born within each lunar year are believed to possess the qualities of that year’s animal, using those traits to achieve success and happiness throughout life.
