The Lunar Series II is minted by the Perth Mint and was introduced in 2008 in gold and silver. The coins depict motifs from the Chinese Lunar calendar.

The Chinese Moon Calendar is one of the calendars that use the lunar and / or solar cycle as the basis.
According to Chinese mythology, the 12 zodiacal signs were created when Buddha's animal world was invited to attend the New Year's festival. He gave the 12 animals, who followed his invitation, a sequence in the order of their arrival.
