The Chinese lunar calendar positions each of the 12 animals in its regular cycle in a particular order. Chinese history has numerous stories to explain the ranking of the animals, but the most common is some form of a race to meet with the Jade Emperor. As the goat arrived eight, it appears annually in the eighth year of the cycle.
The goat and horse, according to Chinese cultural lore, are kind and modest creatures. During the race to meet the emperor, the goat and horse were so kind to one another that each tried to let the other arrive first. The emperor saw this politeness in the creatures and ranked the seventh and eighth respectively.
On the obverse of the 10 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Goat Silver Bar, you’ll notice an adult goat with tall, straight horns standing in front of a bush and some tall grass. The lone inscription on this side of the bar is that of the Chinese symbol for a goat.
The reverse of the 10 Gram Lunar Goat Silver Bar reveals more to this scene than just a lone adult standing in a field. Laying down, nestled in snuggly behind the bush is a young goat. This side of the bar has engravings of the PAMP Suisse logo, the bar’s weight, metal content, and purity, and the individual serial number for this product.

An assay card is included with the packaging that includes the signature of a certified assayer, along with the weight, metal content, and purity of the bar.
