According to the Chinese zodiac, the Rooster rules the roost in 2017. In an on-going celebration of traditional Chinese-Canadian culture, this fine silver coin by the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates 2017 as the Year of the Rooster and honours all those born under its sign. Mintage 15,888. HST/GST exempt.
The reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group commemorates the Year of the Rooster with a stylized depiction of a rooster. Detailed engraving recreates its familiar appearance and captures the essence of the animal’s character: observant, resourceful and self-assured. Other symbolic elements are artfully incorporated into the design, including the gladiola flowers that are traditionally associated with this sign, as well as the Chinese character for “rooster”.
