The Chinese Lunar Calendar theme for silver and gold precious metal products was launched by the Perth Mints original Lunar Series program of silver and gold coins. Today that program is the preeminent option in the market, but the competition is growing in variety and quality.
Highland Mint releases its fourth design in the Lunar Series, honoring the Year of the Rooster on the Zodiac. The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a 12-year cycle with different animal assigned to each of the 12 years on the calendar.
It is said that the Jade Emperor called a meeting of all the animals of the world, but only the 12 represented in the Zodiac showed up. They are represented as such because they were given special status in Chinese culture as the only creatures to heed the emperors call. Those born under the sign of the rooster are loyal, hardworking, honest, and sociable.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Highland Mint Rooster Silver Round youll find the image of a rooster, complete with an engraving above identifying the specific release and one below that features the year of issue.
The obverse side of each Rooster Silver Round includes the so-called elemental design, which bears the periodic table of elements square for silver. Included are the purity, metal content, and weight of the round.
Highland Mint is a private minting facility located in Melbourne, Florida. Founded in the 1980s, today it is best known for its sports memorabilia rounds and other precious metal products.
