Story

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.

Lunar design

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.
