Gold Coast Bullion is proud to present the 2017 1oz Australian Lunar Series Rooster Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Coin from The Perth Mint.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The rooster is the tenth animal in the 12 year-cycle of the Chinese zodiac. People born under the influence of this sign are said to be highly motivated, hardworking and multi-talented. The talkative Rooster can be quite social and enjoys being in a group setting or crowd, where they can display their many talents and skills.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1oz 9999 Fine Gold
  • Australian Legal Tender with government backed purity guarantee and face value of #specs_Denomination#

The coin’s reverse portrays an image of a rooster standing on one leg with its beak raised, surrounded by the foliage of bamboo forest. Also featured is the inscription ‘Year of the Rooster’ on the bottom of the coin, below the Chinese character for Rooster and the Perth Mint’s security feature ‘P’ mintmark.
