Celebrate the Year of the Rat with a Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

Were you, or someone you know, born in the Year of the Rat?

1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008  

Since 2014, each coin in The Shēngxiào Collection has celebrated the lunar animals of the Chinese zodiac in turn. As the cycle starts anew in 2020 with the Year of the Rat, The Royal Mint is delighted to add a new Brilliant Uncirculated coin to the range.

Traditionally, at Chinese New Year people visit friends and family and bring them small gifts. Priced at £13, it’s a unique and thoughtful way to wish someone special good luck for the year ahead. Housed in packaging that brings the stories behind these wonderful, age-old customs to life, and featuring a design that showcases the rat’s personality traits, it’s a welcome addition to this popular collection.
