    The Perth Mint does it again with the newest installment for the 12-coin series. The Australian Lunar Series II Silver 1/2 Ounce 2017 Rooster is now available to continue your beloved collection! The Australian Lunar Series II is a follow-up series from Lunar Series I, that was in production from 1996-2007. The Perth Mint honors the Chinese zodiac calendar by minting a coin representative of that animal's year, in gold and silver. This ancient calendar is mainly used for fortune-telling but also used for self-awareness. Depending on the year you were born under, you can learn more about your personality and the decisions you tend to make based off of who you are. The Lunar Years of the Rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017. Those born under these dates are said to be hardworking, loyal, and extroverted.

    The obverse highlights famous sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley's masterpiece of Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the silver purity and legal tender value. Following the Perth Mint's tradition, of combining brilliant uncirculated finished background with a proof-like image. The Perth Mint depicts a poignant rooster, on the reverse of the Australian Lunar Silver 1/2 oz Series II 2017 Rooster, while a hen and her chicks keep him company. The birds stand out in a mirror-like finish as the background is highlighted in a matte finish. Guaranteed by the oldest mint in Australia, the Australian Lunar Silver 1/2 oz Series II 2017 Rooster weighs one half ounce of .999 pure silver. Collectors enjoy the beautiful craftsmanship, of the Australian Lunar Series, while also reaping the investment benefits of owning low minted coins.
