Obverse Design

The obverse of all Australian Silver Rooster coins bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy has appeared on all Australian coins since she ascended to the British throne in 1952 following her father’s death. This fourth-generation depiction of the Queen comes from Ian Rank-Broadley, and was created in 1998.

Reverse Design

On the reverse of the 2017 2 oz Australian Silver Rooster Coin youll find the all-new Year of the Rooster design for Lunar Series II coins. Gold coins in the series feature only the rooster, but this silver Year of the Rooster design includes a rooster, one hen, and three chicks in the design field.


Lunar Series II coins are part of a 12-year cycle following the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Each new release features a design, one for gold and another for silver, that reflects the animal represented on the Zodiac that year.
