  • Description:

    Only 40,000 gold rooster coins were minted in 2005 by the world renown, Perth Mint! The gold rooster is part of the Australian Lunar Series I collection that is inspired by the Chinese zodiac calendar. This coin is pure gold, comes in a sealed capsule for protection, and is brilliantly uncirculated. Since this coin has a lower mintage compared to some of the other coins in the series, it is in high demand with coin collectors and coin dealers alike. The 2005 gold rooster is just what you need to start your coin collection and investment! The reverse of this coin reveals a prominent and prideful rooster, looking over the gorgeous landscape. The rooster itself has proof-like qualities but the background design has a matte finish. The attention to detail, on this coin, really sets the rooster apart from the other animals. Every feather is accounted for, even some ruffling is included to show this rooster is territorial. The coin's date of mintage, weight, and purity of 1/2 oz .9999 pure gold are also stamped on the reverse. The front of the coin displays Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in all her glory, through a side profile by Ian Rank-Broadley. The obverse also bears the denomination of the coin, which is $50 and the word, "Australia" as a mark for where the coin was minted.

    The rooster's reputation, from ancient Chinese times, is connected to punctuality, loyalty, and devotion. Many people relied on the rooster's early morning crow to wake them up for the day of work ahead of them. Those born under the year of the rooster are deep thinkers, self-reliant, and like the rooster, they really take pride in their appearance. One weakness of someone born under the year of the rooster is it is difficult to keep their attention. They might be overly excited about something one minute, then the next they could.
