With a purity of .9999 (99.99%), the 2015 1/20th oz Australian Gold Goat is among the purest gold coins in the world. The coins reverse boasts the image of a goat stopped along a treacherous mountain path. The goat is standing in a stoic, upright position peering into the distance. Amid the background is a large mountain range whose peaks expand across the coins face. Beneath where the goat is standing are the words Year of the Goat. The coins obverse depicts Queen Elizabeth II as rendered by Ian Rank-Broadley. Along the outer edges of the reverse are inscriptions which read Elizabeth II, Australia, and 2015. Finally, the obverse is also marked with the 1/20th oz weight, .9999 purity, and $5 AUD face value indications.
The Perth Mint has been in business since the end of the 19th century after it was opened as part of the Royal Mint of England. Since then, however, it has broken ties with the English mint and is an entirely independent operation. The 2015 1/20th Australian Gold Goat is the 8th release of the second Perth Lunar Series.
