The Year of the Rabbit begins on January 22, 2023. CIT dedicates its latest issue of the Lunar series to this occasion, consisting of a banknote, a small gold coin, and a spectacular commemorative coin in the form of a miniature sculpture. This is now the seventh issue of the Lunar series, which has become a popular gift for Chinese New Year celebrations. What all issues have in common is that they do not emphasize the wild, but the friendly side of the animals in the Chinese zodiac. And thus the rabbit of 2023 is an adorable bunny that will coax a smile out of anyone who looks at it.
Especially the miniature sculpture is a perfect gift for people who were born in the Year of the Rabbit.
Those who first saw the light of day in 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, or 2011 are considered talented and ambitious according to the Chinese horoscope. They are wonderful companions who quickly make friends due to their charm and eloquence. People born in the Year of the Rabbit have an excellent network as they are gentle and polite, preferring to avoid conflicts rather than settle them. However, one shouldn’t make the mistake of underestimating a “rabbit”. They know exactly what they want and achieve their goals with calmness, perseverance, and a lot of commitment.

In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we have a lively, interesting, and provocative conversation with Chang Bullock and Orlando Lorenzana of CIT, where we talk about how ultra-modern coins (or postmodern coins, as we call them) have taken over the contemporary coin market and how CIT’s innovations in color and coin minting technology are changing the game for private and sovereign mints.
You cannot walk away from this podcast without learning something about the way minting has changed–and has always been changing throughout the course of monetary history–and we hope it will give you a clearer picture of where we are heading.
