Embracing centuries of tradition surrounding the Chinese Lunar calendar, this year we celebrate the Year of the Rooster with the fourth coin in the Shēngxiào collection. The reverse is once again designed by British Chinese artist and printmaker Wuon-Gean Ho and the obverse displays the fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty The Queen designed by Jody Clark.

Each UK legal tender Lunar coin contains one ounce of 999 fine silver.
