The New Zealand Mint Lunar Series is issued by the private mint on behalf of the island nation of Niue. The island of Niue exists in free association with the nation of New Zealand. Recognized as an independent nation, the country is represented on the international stage by New Zealand and relies on its larger neighbor for defense forces.


Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the 2017 New Zealand Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coins in a design from Ian Rank-Broadley. This image was developed in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England and features on denominations from Britain and Australia to New Zealand, Niue, the Cook Islands, and other Commonwealth nations around the world. In this design, the Queen wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head, a tiara said to be her favorite.


Three roosters are depicted on the reverse side of 2017 New Zealand Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coins. The image featured here captures one rooster perched up on a small picket fence as two others stand nearby in the design field. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include the Chinese symbol for a rooster, the weight, metal content, and purity, and the phrase 2017 Year of the Rooster.


The New Zealand Mint Lunar Series debuted in 2012 and offers fresh designs each year on its silver bullion releases to represent the 12 different animals in the Zodiac. The Year of the Rooster is 10th in the traditional 12-year cycle of the Zodiac, but appears sixth in the New Zealand Lunar Series as it was not released in conjunction with the start of the 12-year cycle.


2017 New Zealand Lunar Rooster 1 oz Silver Coins are available to you today in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins in this series are packaged individually inside of protective plastic flips or inside of plastic tubes of 20 coins.
