Stand out from the Crowd

The five-ounce coin is struck in fine gold to Proof standard and is available in a Limited Edition Presentation of just 38 coins. The rooster is the fourth animal in The Royal Mint’s lunar series brought to life by artist Wuon-Gean Ho, following her designs for the Year of the Horse, Year of the Sheep and Year of the Monkey.

The ten flowers in the foreground are Marsh Daisies (or sea-thrift). In Chinese culture the number ten is believed to symbolise perfection. Each mintage also incorporates the number eight, believed to be lucky in Chinese culture.
