Oxen are the hard workers in the background, intelligent and reliable, but never demanding praise.

The Royal Mint’s Shēngxiào Collection combines British minting craftsmanship with centuries-old Chinese traditions. Artist Harry Brockway has
created the sixth design of the series, working with The Royal Mint’s Coin Design team to create a design which summarises the characteristics
of people born in the Year of the Ox, depicting hard workers in the background, intelligent and reliable

We have celebrated the Chinese zodiac since 2014, releasing new additions to The Shēngxiào Collection every year. Each coin fuses British
craftsmanship with ancient Chinese traditions, ensuring the heritage and history behind this practice is evident in each design. This year is a
special moment in the lunar calendar as the Ox appears only once every 12 years – meaning this is a unique opportunity to mark an important
Chinese tradition.

Years of the Ox are: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021
