Lunar-themed coinage is incredibly popular, and there are many series on the market that depict images of the Chinese zodiac calendar. Perth Mint is now on its second lunar series, and 2017s release is the Year of the Rooster Coin. This is the 10th coin in the series, and it is available in a variety of different weights, metals, and finishes. Right now, you can purchase the 2017 Proof Australian Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals.
Lunar Series II coins debuted in 2008, immediately after the conclusion of the original Lunar Series that ran from 1996 to 2007. The 12-coin series features one animal from the Zodiac calendar on each coin. This is the 10th coin in the series, and it represents those born in 2017 and every 12th year going backward in time. Those born in the sign of the rooster are said to be loyal, honest, hardworking, and sociable.

Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of these coins. She is captured in right-profile relief in this image created by Ian Rank-Broadley. This is the fourth-generation effigy of the Queen to be used on Australian coinage since the first design was debuted in 1952.
The reverse side of each coin shows the all-new Year of the Rooster design. In the image, you will see a tall rooster standing among the bamboo foliage and flowers. There is also a hen and three chicks looking for food nearby.
The coins in this series are all produced by Perth Mint. The Perth Mint is located in Western Australia. While it was originally part of the British Royal Mint system, now it is owned by the local state government and is separate from the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra.
