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

According to the Chinese zodiac, it's the Rooster who rules the roost in 2017! A natural performer who does well in the public eye, the plucky Rooster won't shy away from being the centre of attention. You're likely to find yourself admiring this attractive personality, who likes to look sharp and strut his stuff; but the Rooster is also quick-minded, witty and perceptive—he'll talk to you about anything with enthusiasm! The self-assured Rooster in your life is likely to be a resourceful and honest hard worker—one whose decisive nature will help keep things running smoothly and on schedule.

If you know someone born in the year 1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, or newborns in 2017, then this is a gift they will treasure forever! Order your coin today!

Special features:
  • BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN FINISH! The finish on your coin combines brilliant and frosted relief over a lined background. No other mint in the world offers coins with this kind of finish.
  • CHINESE CHARACTER FOR ROOSTER! Your coin includes the Chinese character for rooster!
  • UNIQUE MINTAGE! Limited to 15,888 coins worldwide.
  • HALF OUNCE PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from 1/2 ounce of 99.99% pure silver.
  • GST/HST EXEMPT! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Design:

Designed by Three Degrees Creative Group, your coin commemorates the Year of the Rooster with a stylized depiction of a rooster. Detailed engraving recreates its familiar appearance and captures the essence of the animal's character: observant, resourceful and self-assured. Other symbolic elements are artfully incorporated into the design, including the gladiolus flowers that are traditionally associated with this sign, as well as and the Chinese character for "rooster".

Packaging:

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

                          Hi Mo,

                          For the most part, numismatic coins under $50 have a Specimen finish. There are exceptions to the rule, at times, but generally speaking - they are.
