Silver Lunar Rooster. It sounds like an exotic Chinese zodiac sign yet it is actually quite the gorgeous silver coin. Issued by the Perth Mint, the 1 ounce Silver Lunar Rooster is one of the most popular coins in the Lunar series. Lunar coins are revered for their gorgeous aesthetics, elite quality, and limited supply. This year's Silver Lunar coins are the first to be minted with .9999 fineness, making them that much more coveted by coin collectors, investors, and everyday people who have an affinity for the finer things in life.

Silver Lunar Rooster Details

The Silver Lunar Rooster is coveted for more than its silver content and the fact that there is a limited mintage. This is a stunning coin in every respect. The obverse side displays Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as portrayed by the famous artist Ian Rank-Broadley. The coin's silver purity, weight, face value, and date are also shown on the obverse side. Flip the coin over and you will find a beautiful scene illustrated in exquisite detail. This side of the coin features a rooster, three chicks, and a hen positioned by wondrous flowers and bamboo. This scene is further enhanced with the Chinese character that represents the word “Rooster” along with the Perth Mint's signature “P” marking and an inscription that reads “Year of the Rooster”.

This is a sovereign coin that has the full backing of the Australian government.

The Australian Lunar Series II represents the culmination of decades worth of effort in the quest to mint the perfect bullion coins.

Those who were born in 2017, 2015, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945, 1933, and 1921 should be proud of the fact that they came into this plane of existence during the Lunar Year of the Rooster.
