In tribute to the legend of the Zodiac, The Royal Mint released the 2021 Chinese Zodiac Lunar Year of the Ox £5 coin. The Chinese Zodiac calendar can be tracked back as far as the 14th Century B.C and has fascinated the imaginations of millions of people since. As part of the eternal twelve-year cycle, an animal and its reputed attributes are assigned to each year. Harry Brockway’s design of this brand new £5 coin blends traditional Asian culture in the form of the Zodiac beast, with British-style artistry featuring in the countryside design. The obverse features the fifth portrait of HM QEII by Jody Clark.
