The year 2017 is ruled by the confident Rooster, who embodies character traits such as resourcefulness, perceptiveness and self-assurance. Individuals born under this sign are typically honest, forthright and trustworthy; while the Rooster personality is extremely sociable and yearns to be in the spotlight, he/she is also a motivated hard worker and a devoted friend. Celebrate 2017 as the Year of the Rooster with this magnificent silver coin, which honours all who are born under its sign.
Crafted in one kilogram of 99.99% pure silver, this superb coin was meticulously polished by hand to achieve its beautiful proof finish.
Features an exquisite scallop shaped edge, and the selective application of red enamel over engraved elements against a mirror background.
Each coin is enclosed in a silver satin-like covered case, with a custom sleeve whose red colour adds another element of “luck” to this valuable collectible.
A magnificent celebration of the time-honoured traditions and culture of Canada’s Chinese communities.
The reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group commemorates 2017 as the Year of the Rooster with an intricate side profile view of its animal representative. Detailed engraving recreates the rooster’s feathered appearance and captures the essence of the animal’s character: observant, resourceful and self-assured. Other elements associated with this sign are artfully incorporated into the design—including the five gladiolus flowers that represent the Rooster’s lucky number, “5.” The use of vibrant coloured enamel is also emblematic, as red brings an element of luck to the square shape that bears the engraved Chinese character for “rooster”.
