In Chinese culture the rat is thought of as godly creature, capable of helping humans by warning of natural disasters. People born in the Year of the Rat are considered smart and resourceful, with a positive outlook on life.
With the release of the seventh coin in The Shēngxiào Collection, the zodiac cycle starts over, which means the Rat is in the ascendancy. P. J. Lynch’s design showcases the qualities of this fascinating animal. A rat, bristling with agility and inquisitiveness, is set against a backdrop of peonies – a symbolic flower in Chinese culture.
