Product Information

 

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.

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Silver

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.

2017 Year of the Rooster Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a coloured 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.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
