Product Information

 

2017 is the Year of the Rooster, the tenth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. This stunning silver typeset collection comprises four silver coins - a proof, gilded, bullion and coloured finished coin.

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.

Four 99.99% Pure Silver 1oz Coins

Each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and finished in a stunning range of popular numismatic treatments sought after by collectors and gift buyers.

Proof, Gilded, Bullion and Coloured Finishes

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.

  • The delicately frosted design on the silver proof coin appears on a mirror-like polished table.
  • The shiny design on the bullion coin appears on a frosted table.
  • The gilded edition highlights the rooster in 24-carat gold on a frosted table.
  • The coloured edition depicts the rooster, hen, and chicks in vivid colour on a frosted table.
