Year of the rooster
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.
The reverse of each coin depicts a rooster standing in a stylised Chinese scene featuring bamboo and leaves. 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.
Presentation packaging and numbered certificate
Each coin and three-coin set is housed in an oval-shaped, glossy black and timber-inspired display case and illustrated lunar-themed shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
