Australia Issues First Coins
Commemorating Chinese "Year of the Rooster"
Here’s your chance to be one of the first to own Australia’s new 2005-dated coins commemorating the Chinese “Year of the Rooster” -- that will start on February 9, 2005. This is the tenth issue in the Lunar-Zodiac series launched by the Perth Mint in 1996. The Chinese believe that the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on their personality. Those born in the Year of the Rooster (2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945, etc.) are said to be honest, hardworking and talented; they are also not afraid to speak their minds, are independent and tenacious – such as Confucius, Verdi, Wagner, and Katherine Hepburn.

Australia’s Perth Mint issues brilliant uncirculated pure silver coins ranging from ½ oz. to 1 kilogram (over 32 oz.). Each coin is struck from the purest (9999 fine) silver, and comes in a protective clear acrylic capsule. Since Australia is a member of the British Commonwealth, a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse. The reverse pictures a rooster with the rising sun on the left and a camellia on the right; the date appears in English and Chinese.

Australia 2005 Year of the Rooster
One of the denominations is quite unusual -- $8 face value for the 5 oz. coin. These are expected to be particularly popular since “8” is considered as a lucky number in Asia.
