2021 UK Lunar Year of the Ox BU £5

The Ox is a symbol of diligence in Chinese culture, known to be dependable, strong and determined.

This year, The Royal Mint has released a BRAND NEW £5 coin celebrating the Chinese Lunar Year of the Ox in Superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality!

Second Chinese Lunar Year Base Metal £5

In 2019, The Royal Mint released the UK’s first-ever 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 Chinese Lunar Year of the Ox, with the second coin in this exciting new series.

Excitingly for collectors, this is the first issue from The Royal Mint to be dated 2021!

What’s more, as the only official UK coin to celebrate the Year of the Ox, the reverse features original artwork created especially for this brand new £5.

Designed by Harry Brockway, traits associated with people born in the Year of the Ox strongly feature in the design.

Repeating once every twelve years, this is a beautiful fusion of British and Chinese tradition.
