The Year of the Sheep coin is the second in the series of Royal Mint lunar coins. The Royal Mint started producing their own lunar coins in 2014, with the Year of the Horse. Available in both gold and silver versions, the coins have proved to be a quite popular with both investors and collectors.

Whilst the Perth Mint have decided to use the "Year of the Goat", the Royal Mint are using the "Year of the Sheep". Both animals are recognised as the 8th in the lunar cycle.
