The ancient Chinese lunar cycle resets in 2020. This beautiful silver coin is the first of Lunar Series III, celebrating the Year of the Mouse.
According to Chinese mythology, the order of the animals in the ancient zodiac calendar was decided with a great race across a river. Traditional storytellers say it was the mouse who leapt onto the riverbank first by tricking his neighbour, the cat, before hitching a ride on the back of the ox. Those born under the influence of mouse are said to be smart, adaptable and curious by nature.
