THE PERTH MINT LAUNCHES THE LUNAR ROOSTER
The Perth Mint’s highly anticipated launch of the Australian Lunar – 2017 Year of the Rooster gold and silver bullion coins series has arrived early.
These magnificent gold coins celebrate the Year of the Rooster, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, and 2017. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be hardworking, loyal, honest, and sociable.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. No mintage limit applies to the 1/4oz gold coin however, production will close at the end of 2017 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin's official mintage.
Each bullion coin is presented in protective acrylic capsules.
