2023 Pure Gold Coin – Lunar Year of the Rabbit

Welcome the Year of the Rabbit and usher in joy with this magnificent Lunar New Year keepsake from the Royal Canadian Mint. Crafted in one kilogram of 99.99% pure gold, the coin's reverse design is inspired by the Chinese legend of the Jade (Moon) Rabbit. It features a folk art depiction of the Goddess of the Moon's trusted companion, complete with auspicious symbols that imply a blessing of vitality, longevity and prosperity in 2023. According to the Chinese zodiac, you're a Rabbit if you were born in 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011 and 2023.

This highly exclusive 99.99% pure gold kilo coin that carries a blessing of vitality and longevity is the second coin in a new 12-year Lunar New Year series that began with the Year of the Tiger (2022).
