On the reverse side of all 2017 1 oz Proof Fiji Pearl Rooster Silver Gilded Coins you’ll find the unique Year of the Rooster coin selected by the MDM mint and its artists. These coins include a pair of roosters facing each other, each with a single leg raised. In the background, snow-capped mountains rise toward the sky as the sun rises between the peaks.
There is a 24-karat gold plating included on this coin’s reverse side, which is applied to only a select few design features. Both roosters have a gilded finish, as does the rising sun and its warm rays, bringing added brilliance to the coin.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof Fiji Pearl Rooster Silver Gilded Coin you’ll notice the official emblem of the nation of Fiji. It is included along with engravings of the coin’s nation of issue, year of issue, purity, metal content, and weight.
The Year of the Rooster begins in January 2017, and the MDM has made this coin special in more ways than one. On the reverse side, in addition to the 24-karat gold plating on certain design features, you’ll find a real freshwater pearl inserted into the very center of the design for added beauty.
Each of the 2017 1 oz Proof Fiji Pearl Rooster Silver Coins listed here today ships to you inside of a beautiful red box, with the coin itself encapsulated for protection and an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity set inside the lid.
