Celebrate the birth of a child with our beautiful Chinese zodiac birth certificates.

The Chinese zodiac birth certificates have been designed by artist Kordelya Zhan Sui Chi, an Archibald Prize finalist. Her designs combine Chinese design elements with each zodiac animal and iconic Australian flora.

These specially-designed birth certificates are decorative mementos.

They're not a legal document and can't be used for official purposes.

Each certificate is printed on archival quality paper and fits a standard frame size of 280mm x 355mm (11" x 14"). You can apply for a commemorative birth certificate when you order a standard birth certificate or when you register the birth.

Alternatively, choose from our range of Victorian and Australian-themed certificates.
