At the bottom of the coin are it's weight of 1 ounce, its purity of 999.5 fine, and its face value of 100 Australian Dollars. This is likely the final year that the coin will feature Her Majesty on the front, as her image is set to be replaced by an image of King Charles III.

About the Lunar Rabbit Coin

The Platinum Australian Lunar coin is released by the Perth Mint, and is part of the Mint's Lunar series. The Lunar series is a series of 12 coins, each released annually, in line with the Chinese lunar calendar. This series is in its third cycle of release. 

The Rabbit coin series is currently only available in the 1 ounce size in platinum, although other sizes of the coin are available in gold and silver. Each coin comes sealed in a plastic capsule to protect it from scratching or damage. 

About the Lunar Series
 
The Lunar Series was first released by the Perth Mint in 1996 in gold. Since then it has gained in popularity and has a following among numismatic collectors and bullion enthusiasts. The series follows the Chinese Lunar calendar, and depicts a new animal each year. After 12 years, the cycle repeats itself. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar calendar, each representing different characteristics in people born in that year, as well as offering horoscope like predictions for the future year based on trends and characteristics of the animal. 
 
The Lunar series was first released by the Perth Mint in 1996 in gold, and silver and platinum coins have since been added to the series. The Perth Mint is also famous for a number of other coins they release, including the Kangaroo series, which is also available in gold, silver and platinum.
