In 2017 we celebrate the ninth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, and 2017. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be hardworking, loyal, honest, and sociable. 

Purity and Issue Limit

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the 2017 Year of the Rooster 1oz Gold Proof Coloured Edition. 


The reverse of the coin depicts a coloured rooster standing in a stylised Chinese scene featuring bamboo and leaves. The Chinese character for ‘rooster’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rooster’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date, and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.


Each coin is housed in an oval-shaped, glossy black and timber-inspired display case and illustrated lunar-themed shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
