The latest design in the Shengxiao Series from the Royal Mint of England is that of the rat. 2020 marks the first year in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac and the Year of the Mouse is first. Arriving first in the Great Race to meet the Jade Emperor, the mouse used trickery to deceive the ox and finish first in the race.
The Shengxiao Series from the Royal Mint of England was introduced by 2014 and has proven exceptionally popular with investors and collectors in the years since. Unlike other lunar-themed series, the Royal Mints Shengxiao Collection offers just a 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold bullion coin with a variety of other weights in the proof series.
