Take Centre Stage

With a diameter of 100mm the kilo coin is the largest silver coin in the collection, finished to Proof standard. Kilo coins are the largest UK coins made by The Royal Mint. In 2011 an amendment was made to the Coinage Act, 1971, enabling The Royal Mint to strike coins of this weight and larger, for the first time.

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.

Available in a Limited Edition of Presentation of 68 coins, each mintage incorporates the number eight, believed to be lucky in Chinese culture.
