Story

In 2017, we celebrated 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.

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.
