No other precious metal conveys prestige like gold, and this limited mintage coin will exalt your favourite Rat person as one of the most treasured individuals you know.

They succeed at virtually everything they do, but business is where they truly shine. Rat people can strategize and stretch finances like no other. If you receive an extravagant gift from a Rat, know that you are cherished and prized indeed!

Canadian artist Aries Cheung has created an endearing design of a Rat in its characteristic stance as it explores the field of the coin. Seen from above, the Rat is positioned between lucky waves to the left and auspicious clouds to the right, their swirling contours echoed in the Rat's fur to bestow good fortune upon this zodiac sign. The Chinese character for “Rat” is engraved above the waves.

Did you know…
  • Legends abound how the tiny rat became the first sign in the Chinese zodiac when the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals. Many claim the Rat hitched a ride on the kind and helpful Ox, and jumped off at the last moment to get there first. While the Horse was arguably a faster option, some legends claim the high-spirited Horse refused to cooperate, or was too polite to race ahead of the others.
  • Lucky symbols for Rat people include the numbers two and three, the colours blue, gold and green, as well as the lily and African violet.
  • The Rat is happiest with the Dragon, Ox or Rabbit, and will achieve great things when teamed up with the Dog or Monkey. The Rat lacks patience when dealing with the Rooster and will never get along with the fiery Horse. It's the polar opposite of the Rat's water element.


Your coin is encapsulated and housed in a gold satin-like covered case with a custom red sleeve.
