Everyone LOVES these oversized, 2 troy ounce pure silver puppies!

The rooster with brightly colored plumage crowing.This 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 vignette is highlighted on fully mirrored 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 Coin Show Special presentation packaging) & the beauty of the design, color and full proof finish, we think you'll be impressed with this affordable, pure silver rooster!

The Year of the Rooster - Loyal, Attractive and Accomplished!
Those born in the years 1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, and 2017 celebrate the Year of the Rooster. According to tradition, people born during a Year of the Rooster are said to exhibit that animal’s attributes. They are observant, brave, resilient, attractive, and tenacious, but can also be self-absorbed and overly romantic.

Rooster people are very observant. Most of the time, they are precise and accurate with their observations. You can say that Roosters have a very keen "sixth sense". It is not an easy task to fool the Rooster. Their mind is cautious and skeptical. Gifted with perception, Roosters make excellent trouble shooters, detectives, fixers, bagmen, doctors, nurses and psychiatrists.

A beautifully colored rooster struts proudly. With Roosters, what you see is exactly what you get; they are straightforward and forthright. Roosters like to appear attractive and beautifully turned out. They are sociable and love to receive attention. The Rooster likes to be noticed and flattered. They might dress a little nattily with this in mind, but in their heart, they are usually conservative. Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering. They enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charm at the drop of a hat.

Roosters are always up, out and doing things. They are extremely motivated, the most motivated of all the animals of the Chinese Lunar Zodiac. You rarely see a relaxed rooster that sits quietly on the couch doing nothing. They are also multi-talented, and can become accomplished in many different ways. Because they are hardworking, resourceful, courageous and talented, Roosters are typically confident about themselves.

Roosters are loyal and they make devoted friends. They keep their promises and are true to their word. Sensitive individuals may find it hard to get along well with Roosters, because they can brag about themselves and their accomplishments, which may make other, less accomplished, animals uncomfortable. The Seattle grunge band Alice in Chains had an early alternative radio and mainstream rock hit with their song "Rooster" back in 1992. It was about an infantry soldier grunt's experiences during the Vietnam War. Now you know.

A rooster (the cock of the walk), a mother hen, and their three baby chicks enjoy the good life. The legend YEAR OF THE ROOSTER defines the theme. The Chinese character for "Rooster" is above the hen, while the Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is judiciously placed to the left, near the 9:00 position along the rim.
