One kilo version of the Perth Mint's Year of the Rooster lunar coins. This 2017 silver bullion coin is struck in 999 fineness and celebrates the Year of the Rooster and is sold as an investment product.
The Year of the Rooster begins on the 28th January, 2017. It is the Chinese year 4715. There are 12 animals in the lunar cycle and the rooster is the 10th. It is thought that people born during the different lunar years carry certain character attributes. Those born during the Year of the Rooster are said to be observant, confident, hardworking and honest.
This is the largest size of the coin we stock, however we may be able to source the 10 kilo version of the coin.
