Our most affordable Year of the Sheep coin, an ideal gift!

The year 2015 is ruled by the Sheep. The creative Sheep personality embodies wealth, warmth and loveliness. Good things seem to come to the Sheep naturally because of its irresistibly good nature. The Sheep rarely speaks its mind. It will go with the flow and only object when things aren't going its way. Push too hard and it will react—decisively! The gregarious Sheep is an eternal romantic. It adores being showered with love and attention.

The Year of the Sheep also ruled 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991 and 2003.  However, people born in January or February should consult the Chinese lunar calendar. New Year does not automatically fall on January 1st. This celebration is better known as the Spring Festival and coincides with the first day of spring—a date that shifts from year to year depending upon the lunar cycle and solar year.

The perfect gift for someone born in the Year of the Sheep! Order yours today!

Special features:
•  This specimen coin is crafted in 99.99% fine silver.
•  A beautiful addition to your Chinese zodiac-themed collection.
•  The Chinese character yang (meaning "sheep" or "goat") denotes the Year of the Sheep.
•  Your coin is GST/HST exempt and has a limited worldwide mintage.

Design:
Your coin features a detailed depiction of a Bighorn sheep, which is native to Canada's Rocky Mountains. Here, the sheep is viewed in three-quarter profile, which affords the viewer a close look at its distinctively long, spiral horns. An artistic rendering of bamboo–a symbol of longevity–fills the background. The Chinese character yang, meaning "sheep" or "goat," appears below the sheep's shoulder to represent the Year of the Sheep.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box.

                My wife and I wanted something different for our grandson to mark the year of his birth. The Welcome to the World coin with the baby's feet was too generic. 2 years ago, we got the Year of the Snake coin for our granddaughter. We continued the tradition this year for our grandson with the Year of the Sheep.
