2023 Lunar Year of the Rabbit £5

2023 Lunar Year of the Rabbit CERTIFIED BU £5

** No longer available at The Royal Mint **

In Chinese culture, the Rabbit is a symbol of hope and is the luckiest of the 12 animals. Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be gentle and approachable, with a decent and kind-hearted character.

To celebrate the upcoming Chinese Lunar Year, The Royal Mint has released a £5 coin celebrating the Year of the Rabbit in 2023.

Chinese Lunar Year Base Metal £5 Coins

In 2019, The Royal Mint released the UK’s first-ever Lunar Year base metal £5 coin celebrating the first animal of the Chinese Zodiac the Rat.

As a new year approaches, we now prepare to celebrate the fourth Chinese Lunar Year Coin with the latest release in this exciting series featuring the Rabbit!

Superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality

This coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality and protectively encapsulated in official Change Checker packaging, certified to guarantee its superior quality for generations to come.

What’s more, as this coin was released ahead of the New Year, it is one of only TWO UK coins dated 2023 to feature the Queen’s portrait! This will undoubtedly make the issue increasingly sought-after in years to come.

Repeating once every twelve years, this is a beautiful fusion of British and Chinese tradition, not to be missed!
