Canada and US only

Each coin comes in an attractive Asian-inspired case!

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.

        "Packaging:

        Coin came in a tiny piece of cardboard with no case or sleeve. Very disappointed with this purchase.

            Very beautiful coin. The coin is just prestine. What you see here is what you'll get except maybe one thing: the case! My coin did not come with the Asian-inspired case. It did not come with a case at all; it just came with the brown packaging box. Very dissappointed about that. I emailed customer service, we'll see if they'll rectify the issue.

                    This one is my personal collection which is the similar design as my horse sliver coin as this year. But it is a perfect gift for my chinese friends too.

                          I am a subscriber of the 12-coin series. The coin itself is great in terms of design and production. The drawback for this coin is that
                          1) Double the montage of previous coins (poorer resale value);
                          2) Much smaller certificate comparing to previous coins' (looks inconsistent and feels cheap);
                          3) The protective cover comes in with a crack at the edge (did the job at one point before reaching me).

                          Please deliver the coins we were promised at the time of subscription by maintaining the same mintage and the same certificate on top of the great concept, design and production.
