The Perth Mint found incredible success with the release of the Lunar Series of silver coins. The Series I was met with such high demand that the Perth Mint went on to create a second series. The Lunar Series II features 12 fresh new designs of the animals that feature in the Chinese Lunar series of coins. Your 2017 High Relief Proof Australian Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coin focuses on the 10th animal in the series, the rooster. Each of these coins contain 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver and has a face value of $1, backed by the Australian government. These coins are considered to be exceptionally collectible.
The Lunar Series II is a 12-coin release offered by the Perth Mint. The collection follows the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Lunar calendar. Each of the animals on the Zodiac calendar appear once every 12 years. The characteristics and personality traits of the animals said to be reflected in the individuals who are born under a specific sign.
Your 2017 Australian Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coin was struck on concave, high-relief blanks. The coining process for high relief proofs often includes multiple strikings of the same blank under high pressure to ensure a brilliant, 3D finish to the coin’s design.
The obverse design of the 2017 Australian Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait of the Queen was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. It is the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty to appear on coinage since she took the throne.
The reverse design of the 2017 Australian Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coin features the Year of the Rooster design. This silver-exclusive design features the image of a rooster, depicted standing on one leg. There is also a hen and a group of three chicks scratching on the ground in search of food.
The Perth Mint was established in 1899, and stands today as the oldest operational mint in Australia. Today the Perth Mint is owned by the state of Western Australia.
