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.

    Prior examples of this coin, includied a Royal Canadian Mint write up of the importance of the animal in the Lunar Calendar. This coins documentation is so minimalistic, it is really disappointing.

            A stunning coin. It is larger and heavier than I expected. The design is beautifully rendered. This qualifies as a work of art, in my mind.

                This is a lovely coin for a person who enjoys zoomorphic themed collectibles and who was born under the Sheep sign.

                My request was filled within a couple of days and received in less than a week from ordering.

                    It is so unique in shape and there can only be 12 in the collection. So it makes it affordable for almost anyone. I hope there is going to be a handsome display box in the future.
