The Chinese Lunar calendar has a 12-year cycle. Each new year in the cycle is represented by an animal that holds cultural and historical meaning. The 100 Gram Silver Lunar Rooster Bar depicts the image of a proud rooster. The rooster is the 10th animal in the 12-year cycle of this calendar. Offered by PAMP Suisse, which has a reputation for being the leading bullion brand in the world, this bar contains 3.215 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. This bar is an interesting addition to any collection of Lunar Zodiac pieces, but is also a great choice for the investor to consider adding.
The Year of the Rooster falls in 2017, and like all of the other animals in the Zodiac, the Rooster comes around every 12 years. Those born under the sign of the rooster are believed to be observant, hardworking, resourceful, and courageous. Going back every 12 years you can find your own birth year in the series, with the Year of the Rooster going back in the last five decades to 2005, 1993, 1981, and 1969.
For the Year of the Rooster design, PAMP Suisse continued with its use of reflective images on each side. This doesnt mean that the surface of the bars is reflective, but rather that the two designs reflect the same image from different viewpoints.
The obverse design of the 100 Gram Silver Lunar Rooster Bar features the proud rooster, with his puffed chest and tail feathers behind him. He is shown with his head turn back to his right. You are viewing the rooster from behind as he is perched on a rocky ledge. Above his head is an engraving that is the Chinese symbol for rooster.
The reverse design of the 100 Gram Silver Lunar Rooster Bar features a different viewpoint of the same rooster. The rooster is now viewed from the edge of the ledge, looking back at him in the same direction he is turning his head. Engravings include the refinery logo, weight, purity, metal content, serial number, and assayers mark.
These 100 Gram Lunar Rooster Silver Bars ship to you housed within protective plastic packaging. Included in the packaging is the assay card, which bears the signature of the PAMP Suisse Assayer verifying the bar’s weight and purity, as well as its individual serial number.
