This 2015 $250 coin is a celebration of Chinese-Canadian culture, embodied by an illustration honouring the ancient Chinese zodiac. The year 2015 is ruled by the sheep, one of the 12 animals assigned to this zodiac; these animals are symbolic representations of how others perceive you, or how you present yourself, although there are many complex layers involved in the actual interpretation of specific birthdays. Mintage is limited to 388 coins. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

This elegant coin boasts a three-quarter view of the face of a ram by Three Degrees Creative, with a crimson-coloured drop of cascading foliage from the top-left of the coin, and crafted in an amazing kilogram of 99.99% fine silver. Created to the exacting and sophisticated standards of the Royal Canadian Mint, this piece features an amazing diameter of 102.1mm and an extremely low mintage of 388 coins, with a matte finish against beautiful mirror background. A thoughtful and unique gift for those born in the year of the sheep, or a spectacular addition to any zodiac-themed collection.


Year of the Sheep:

People born in the Year of the Sheep (otherwise known as the Year of the Goat, or Year of the Ram) are born in the years 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, and 2015. The sheep (or ram) is a well-liked animal, as it is gentle and calm, and does not like to create a fuss. For a very long time, the sheep has represented purity and good things in Chinese culture. Like all things, these signs have dualistic natures. People born in the year of the sheep are likely tender-hearted, polite, and clever. They may have a special craving for art and beauty, and tend to long for a quiet life. Though wisdom and compassion come naturally to those born in the year of the sheep, they also carry potential for pessimism and emotional sensitivity.
