There are few coin programs out there as exciting as lunar-themed bullion programs. Whether you’re an investor or a collector, there is sure to be something in the market that catches your eye. For those who believe in gifting for Lunar New Year, whether that’s for someone else or just for yourself, the Tuvalu Quadrant Set is one of the more exciting releases each year. The Quadrant Set is back in 2023 and offers Tuvalu coins honoring the Year of the Rabbit.
What is the Quadrant Set?
The Tuvalu Quadrant Set is a unique four-coin collection struck by Perth Mint on behalf of Tuvalu. The series is not four coins sold separately, but rather, four 1 oz silver coins with unique shapes that come together to form a singular, 4 oz silver coin that offers four different designs in one traditional, circular format.
Designs of the Quadrant Coins
On the surface, the 2023 Tuvalu Lunar Rabbit Quadrant 1 oz Silver 4-Coin Set looks like a traditional bullion silver coin. With all four pieces together in the display, this circular coin has a square hole at the center that separates the four individual quadrants. These quadrants have their own designs for the Year of the Rabbit that include: two rabbits frolicking, one seated in an alert position, another foraging, and a mother guarding her young babies.
The quadrants each feature colorized elements that bring select foliage in each field to life while colorizing the fur of the rabbits as well. All other elements remain in a brilliant silver finish. Each individual quadrant has the P mint mark of Perth Mint.
On the obverse, the coins of the Tuvalu Lunar Rabbit Quadrant Silver 4-Coin Set include the same design. Here, Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is featured. This design shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This side includes inscriptions of 1 OZ 9999 AG, TUVALU, 1 DOLLAR, 2023, and QUEEN ELIZABETH II. Each individual quadrant has these designs and inscriptions.
Packaging and Details
The 2023 Lunar Rabbit Quadrant Silver 4-Coin Set comes with a classic black display from Perth Mint. The display has a black base that holds the four quadrant coins together inside with a clear, acrylic lid covering the coin for a safe, secure display. The coin and case arrive in a themed shipping box with a Certificate of Authenticity included. The set has four individual 1 oz silver coins and a limited mintage of just 1,500 silver sets.
The Year of the Rabbit
2023 is the Year of the Water Rabbit, the first appearance of this iteration of the Lunar Rabbit since 1963. Each of the 12 animals in the Lunar Calendar has five elemental iterations that represent life on Earth. These include Earth, metal, fire, wood, and water. Generally speaking, rabbits are optimistic, gracious, generous, and kind-hearted. Though these represent strengths, rabbits also have weaknesses like vanity, emotional instability, and satisfaction with the status quo.
