Royal Australian Mint has introduced a new investment bullion coin for 2020, featuring the first animal in the Lunar cycle, the Rat. The rat is the first sign of the twelve-year lunar calendar, and 2020 brings the year of the metal rat. People born under this sign are known for being talented, persuasive and self-aware. The traditional story of the zodiac race also describes the Rat's clever, and quick-witted nature. When the Jade Emperor had the twelve animals of the zodiac race across the river to decide which order they would go in, the rat hitched a ride on the strong Ox, and managed to come in first.
This Gold coin is backed by Royal Australian Mint to be made entirely from ethically produced Gold in Australia, and is also protected by three levels of security, including: an overt "glow" that is detectable under a black light (UVA light), the presence of a semi-covert identifier that gives a pass or fail response on a purpose-built hand-held detector (not included in purchase), and covert information on a forensic level that confirms the coin's identity through a more sophisticated reader solution.
