The Royal Mint Lunar Series

The Royal Mint continues its series of Lunar coins that lend a unique British angle to an ancient tradition. The fourth year in this popular collection features the Year of the Rooster.

The rooster shown in this design is a Marsh Daisy from the Lancashire area of northern England. The ten flowers in the foreground are also called Marsh Daisies (or sea-thrift). In Chinese culture the number ten is believed to symbolize perfection and, as the rooster is also the tenth animal in the zodiac cycle, this year promises to bring luck and prosperity.

Each mintage incorporates the number eight, also believed to be lucky in Chinese culture. The Shengxiào Collection celebrates the 12-year Lunar calendar and its traditions in a unique fusion of Chinese and British heritage. Following the success of the coins struck in the years of the Horse, Sheep and Monkey, this coin features the Rooster and is presented in strictly limited mintages.

This year’s coin is once more designed by British-Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho, whose cultural heritage makes her the ideal artist to convey the meeting of east and west. Wuon-Gean has created a beautiful and dynamic design that captures the energy and agility of the intelligent rooster. With work in collections at the Tate and the Victoria and Albert Museum, this is Wuon-Gean’s fourth commission for The Royal Mint.

The Lunar Year of the Rooster 2017 UK coins are the latest in The Royal Mint’s Shēngxiào Collection, a unique fusion of Chinese tradition and British minting craftsmanship celebrating the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

Each animal is believed to have their own characteristics and, like the rooster strutting through the farmyard, crowing to greet the rising sun, people born in the Year of the Rooster are believed to be confident characters who love to stand out from the crowd.

They spend much of their time perfecting their image and are often very fashion-conscious and well-groomed. The Rooster is the tenth sign in the Chinese zodiac, perhaps no accident that number ten represents perfection in Chinese culture.
