In 2017, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Proof Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Rooster, 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 wealth coin’s reverse depicts a representation of a rooster standing atop a stack of coins and holding a string of bronze ‘cash’ coins signifying wealth and prosperity. The background features a representation of the Terracotta Army.
The wisdom coin’s reverse depicts a representation of an older rooster in a Chinese water garden sitting on a scholar’s rock signifying age and wisdom.
Each set is housed in a classic display case with a colourful illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
