    The history of the Lunar Series II can be traced back to the Perth Mint's desire to commemorate the Chinese zodiac, which is deeply rooted in Asian culture and mythology.

The Year of the Rooster is one of these twelve animal signs, and this coin was released to mark that particular year in the lunar calendar.

The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, created by renowned sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.

The reverse of the coin showcases the meticulous Year of the Rooster design. The rooster is depicted with intricate detailing, capturing the essence of this zodiac sign.

The design is not only visually striking but also carries cultural significance, making it a cherished keepsake for those born in the Year of the Rooster and collectors worldwide.

    One of the standout features of this coin is its weight of two troy ounces, which is double the standard weight of most lunar gold coins. This substantial weight adds to its desirability among collectors and investors, as it contains a larger amount of precious metal content. The coin is minted in 99.99% pure gold, attesting to the Perth Mint's commitment to producing coins of the highest purity.
