The goat, often referred to as a sheep instead, is the eighth animal on the lunar calendar.

- Design features the goat design from the Chinese Lunar calendar.
- Minted at Highland Mint in Melbourne, Florida.
The Year of the Goat occurs once every 12 years, and people who are born in 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, and 2015 fall under the sign of the goat. Those people born in the Year of the Goat are said to be mild mannered, shy, sympathetic, creative, intelligent, and calm. All of these characteristics are associated with the goat as well.
On the primary face of the bar is the Year of the Goat design. In the image, a goat is featured charging forward across the bar, horizontally from left to right. Engravings include the Chinese symbol for goat in the upper right, “2015 Year of the Goat” in the upper left, and the weight, purity, and metal content in the bottom right. The opposite side of the bar features a simple checkerboard design arranged diagonally across the bar.
