Buy this extremely rare Series 1 2005 1 oz Perth Mint Lunar Year of the Rooster colourized gold coin through our online store, we ship worldwide.

The reverse of this coin features a rooster crowing while standing on a rock amidst grass. The image is greatly enhanced with select enamel colourization applied by the Perth Mint.

These superb quality releases are perfect for people born in "rooster" years - 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017. They are regarded as hardworking, confident and courageous. Roosters are talkative and like to be the centre of attention.

The Chinese character for "rooster" and the inscription "Year of the Rooster" also appear in the design along with The Perth Mint's traditional "P" mintmark, the year and weight. As well as appealing to gold coin collectors, these outstanding releases also make great gifts for people born in any year "ruled" by the Chinese lunar rooster.
