The only real difference to the coins in the first series is the width of the series 2 coins, instead of being 40mm in width this new series has a width of 45.6mm. The series 2 coins still have a weight of 1 ounce or 31.135 grams each, the purity of silver in each of these wonderful looking lunar coin is .999. The coin generally features a different animal on the reverse of the coin which is changed each year with a new design, and a image of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse of the coin.
