Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, the Year of the Sheep Gold coin celebrates ancient Chinese culture. Composed of .9999 pure gold, each coin has a diameter of 16mm and weighs approximately 3g.
Like its predecessors, the coin’s obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the reigning monarch of Canada. ELIZABETH II and D.G. REGINA — which stands for “Dei Gratia Regina” or “By the Grace of God, Queen” — are also inscribed.
Designed by Simon Ng, the reverse features a bighorn sheep in front of a cluster of bamboo. CANADA, YEAR OF THE SHEEP, 5 DOLLARS and the year of mintage are engraved.

About the Year of the Sheep
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2015 is the Year of the Sheep. The animal represents wealth, warmth and creativity. Because of its inherently gentle nature — meek, submissive and understanding — the sheep is blessed with good fortune.
About the Royal Canadian Mint
Founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint is one of the world’s most advanced refiners of gold and silver. The Mint rose as the first to produce gold coins inscribed with the name CANADA, along with iconic Canadian images like the maple leaf and the coat of arms.
Today, RCM markets to collectors and investors alike, producing a variety of high-quality bullion coins, wafers and bars.
