In 2017, we celebrate the tenth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, and 2017.
Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be hardworking, loyal, honest, and sociable.
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.
The reverse of each coin depicts a rooster, a hen, and three chicks standing amongst bamboo foliage and flowers. The Chinese character for ‘rooster’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rooster’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
These 5 oz coins come packaged individually in a protective plastic case.
