The Year of the Rooster is the fourth animal in the Royal Mint's Shēngxiào Collection, and the tenth animal in the lunar cycle. Those born during the Year of the Rooster are said to be observant, confident, hardworking and honest.
The Jody Clark portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of the coin.
Like the previous coins in the series, the reverse is designed by the British Chinese artist, Wuon-Gean Ho. The coin shows a rooster, surrounded by ten Marsh Daisies (sea-thrift), representing the tenth animal in the lunar cycle. The number ten is also thought to symbolise perfection in Chinese culture.
The reverse bears the Chinese Year of the Rooster symbol and the legend YEAR OF THE ROOSTER·2017 with 1 OZ FINE SILVER 999.
