A stunning 18-karat gold coin to celebrate a strong new Year of the Ox.

Your favourite Ox personality will be your all-time devotee when you honour them with this exquisite 18-karat gold coin celebrating the Year of the Ox. The common expression "strong like an ox" isn't just about physical strength; it also refers to the Ox's mental fortitude. No matter how difficult a task may be, the Ox personality keeps going. While other zodiacs may rely on wit and cunning, the Ox achieves its goals through sheer tenacity and dedication. Its patience is legendary, but the quiet and introverted Ox will buck injustice to take command if pushed too far. The Ox is a fair-minded powerhouse that will honour you with an unwavering bond.

Steadfast and true, 2021 is the Year of the Ox. Order your 18-karat gold coin today!

Special features:
  • CRAFTED IN 18-KARAT GOLD: A prestigious addition to your lunar collection or gift for anyone born in the year of the Ox: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009—and this year's newborns from February 12, 2021 to January 30, 2022.
  • A MUST-HAVE FOR ANY COLLECTION: The 12th and final coin in this ongoing series honouring all 12 Chinese zodiacs, and a great addition to any collection of gold, zodiac, cultural or art-themed coins.
  • A GOLDEN GIFT FOR BEST WISHES IN THE NEW YEAR: Celebrate the loyal and strong ox in your life with this auspicious theme.
  • AUTHENTIC CHINESE DESIGN portrays the dedicated and benevolent Ox in the distinctive style of Asian folk art—a treasure for anyone who appreciates culture and art.
  • EXCLUSIVE MINTAGE: Only 1,500 coins worldwide, and highly collectible!
  • POLISHED TO PERFECTION: A captivating treasure celebrating traditional Chinese-Canadian culture with an impeccable proof finish that highlights the fine engraving and frosted details against a flawlessly shiny background.
  • BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED in a gold, satin-like case with a custom sleeve whose red colour brings another element of luck to this valuable collectible.

Canadian artist Aries Cheung has created a stylized depiction of an Ox charging towards its Chinese character situated on the left side of the design. Beneath the Ox's feet, dust swirls about like auspicious clouds, their swirling contours echoed in the Ox's flank to bestow good fortune upon this zodiac sign. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The Year of the Ox occurs every 12 years—1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009—and now, 2021. However, the Chinese New Year shifts annually due to the Spring Festival, and this affects the zodiac for people born in January and February. For example, the Year of the Ox begins on February 12, 2021 and ends on January 30, 2022.
  • Famous Canadian Ox people include: Oscar Peterson, Jim Carrey, Marc Garneau, Michael J. Fox, Eric Lindros, Roch Carrier, Frank Mahovlich, Neve Campbell and Paul Coffy.
  • Ox people are strong and robust. They generally enjoy a long, full life with few health issues.
  • Ox people thrive in careers that demand a strong work ethic and determination to get things done. They perform well in manufacturing, mechanics, pharmaceuticals, draftsmanship, politics, real estate, carpentry, engineering and agriculture.
  • The practical, hard-working Ox will forge the strongest relationships with the Snake and Rooster. It will have difficulty trusting the Monkey's scheming ways, and will find the Sheep's emotional sensitivity intolerable.
  • Every Chinese zodiac rotates through the 5 elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water). Metal Ox personalities born in 2021 will have an iron will and nerves of steel. They are reserved, but will express themselves sharply and decisively when necessary.

Your coin is encapsulated and housed in a gold satin-like covered case with a custom red sleeve.
