Chinese Lunar Zodiac 2015 Year of the Ram Sheep GoatThis large, impressive coin represents a tremendous investment opportunity, struck in pure silver! These new Lunar Zodiac Series II coins are huge - at 55.60 mm in diameter, they are more than 2 inches across! This beauty is made all the more desirable by the Mint's execution of this intriguing animal motif in pure silver, artistically rendered in striking, vibrant hues! The full color design is highlighted on frosted, matte fields (or background), further enhancing an already handsome design (which is even nicer looking than the mint-supplied images suggest). Between the large size, the incredibly low mintage (only 1,000 in the mint's special ANDA Show presentation packaging) & the beauty of the design, color and finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver goat!

The Year of the Sheep, Ram or Goat - Creative and Sincere!
Chinese Lunar Zodiac 2015 Year of the Ram Sheep GoatCenturies ago, the Chinese invented a calendar based on the lunar (rather than the solar) cycle. There are twelve animals in the Chinese lunar zodiac, each corresponding in sequence to a year rather than a month.

Those born in the years 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, and 2015 celebrate the Year of the Sheep, Ram or Goat. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Ram or Sheep are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. They are sincere, sympathetic, determined but peaceful, mild-mannered but sometimes pessimistic. They seek security and stability, but can be very generous. They tend to be artistic and creative.

Sheep are easy to spend time around and are have many close friends. However, in love or friendship, they are at first wary of others' motives and usually timid about revealing their true nature. Gaining a Sheep's trust takes time, but once they have been won over, they may become the most ardent of companions. As much as the Sheep can improve another person's life, however, they are also protective about who they let into their inner circle. Not just anyone can get to know someone born under the sign of the Sheep. Rather, a person must prove himself or herself steadily over time, through kind gestures and loving support, until the Sheep finally sees that they are someone who can be trusted.

Chinese Lunar Zodiac 2015 Year of the Ram Sheep Goat Dall Sheep RamTypically surrounded by beautiful things, Sheep have a love of comfort and are almost always elegantly dressed, but can become overly reliant on appearances. In fact, it might be fair to say that many Sheep personalities learn to embrace their inner fabulousness! Conversely, Sheep people also have an innate affinity for nature and natural settings, so they can also be deeply content when getting their hands dirty messing about in the garden!

In the workplace, once they find a position that makes use of their considerable talents, Sheep are passionate about what they do and tend to be successful. Because of their creativity, a Sheep personality may be disorganized, but can usually enjoy great success as artists, actors, gardeners, interior designers, childcare workers, pediatricians, teachers or educators.

This is the eighth annual release in the Lunar Zodiac Series II from Australia!
