Ahead of Chinese New Year on 28 January 2017, we’re delighted to unveil the new designs for the world’s longest running Proof Lunar coin series.
These releases celebrate the 10th animal revered in the ancient Lunar calendar – the rooster. According to ancient Chinese mythology, people born under the influence of the rooster are regarded as hardworking, loyal, honest, and sociable. The rooster is also seen as a perfectionist.
Struck from 99.99% pure gold and, for the first time in its history, 99.99% pure silver, these Australian Lunar coins are presented with an exquisite proof quality finish – their mirror-like reflectivity and delicately frosted motifs a testament to the supreme skill of our minters since the first issue in 1996.
Featuring superbly-styled portrayals of the rooster in his domain, the extremely limited coins are sumptuous collectables and superb gifts that any recipient would be keen to crow over!
