The Monetary Authority of Singapore has unveiled the 2021 Year of the Ox Almanac coins.

The coins feature the ox against the backdrop of Coney Island's rustic scenery, perhaps alluding to the wild bull that roamed the island for years before dying in 2016.

Range of prices

This series of collectible coins is the fifth issue in the Singapore Fourth Chinese Almanac Coin Series, which will be issued from 2017 to 2028.

Each year's coin series will depict a Zodiac animal against a park or natural landscape in Singapore, while the other side of each coin will bear the Singapore Coat of Arms with the year 2021.

The 2021 coins will comprise different metallic compositions, shapes and minting relief effects. All 10 versions will be issued on Jan. 1, 2021.

The coins, which come in gold, silver or nickel-plated zinc, have a face value ranging from S$2 to S$200.
