A contemporary design struck on a fine silver coin

This five-ounce coin is struck in fine silver to Proof standard. The rooster is the fourth in the series of lunar coins 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 stand for perfection. Available in a Limited Edition Presentation of 388 coins, each mintage also incorporates the number eight, believed to be lucky in Chinese culture.
