The Chinese Year of the Rooster officially starts on 28th January, 2017, and it's the Chinese year 4715. The lunar cycle consists of 12 animals. The rooster is the 10th in the series. Those born during the Year of the Rooster are said to be hardworking, thoughtful, observant, confident and honest.

The two ounce coins do not have a set mintage figure. The Perth Mint will produce the coins throughout the year and release the mintage figures once they start producing the 2018 coins. 

Each of the coins comes in a capsule and is made to the standards that we have come to expect from the Perth Mint bullion coins.
