The Lunar Calendar series presents a new animal every year.

The year 2023 is dedicated to the Year of the Rabbit, starting on February 1st, 2023, and ending on January 31st, 2024.

One of the oldest in the world, the chinese calendar is a sun-and-moon calendar. Months are set according to the moon, i.e. the first day of each month is the new moon and the 15th day is the full moon. Because the solar year counts 12 lunar month plus a dozen of days, seven intercalary months are added over each 19 years, in order for the calendar year to stay within a solar year. Chinese astrology is based on a 12 years cycle, represented by twelve animals. In order appear the Rat, the Ox, the Tiger, the Rabbit, the Dragon, the Snake, the Horse, the Goat, the Monkey, the Rooster, the Dog and the Pig. Each animal is a symbol of characteristic personality traits of persons born during this sign.

Surrounded by a circle of traditional Chinese motives, a rabbit is featured in the center of the coin. The animal goes through the coin using the door displayed on the reverse. The ideogram of the rabbit appears on the right hand side. The year date 2023 and the inscription "Year of the rabbit" appear at the top, in the outer circle.

The reverse shows all the animals of the Chinese zodiac featured on a screen surrounding a traditional Chinese temple door. A complete cycle of the Chinese zodiac will be collected from 2018 to 2029. Each of these twelve years therefore features an animal from this calendar.
