Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be hardworking, loyal, honest, and sociable.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.

2017 Year of the Rooster Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a coloured rooster, a hen, and three chicks standing amongst bamboo foliage and flowers. The Chinese character for ‘rooster’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rooster’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
