In 2017, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Rooster, 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.
An issue limit of 8,000 1/2oz coins will be produced in this packaging.
The reverse of the coin depicts a rooster, a hen, and three chicks standing amongst bamboo foliage and flowers.
Each individual coin is housed in a stylish red and black presentation case and themed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
