China Issues 2003 "Year of the Goat"
Flower-shaped, Fan-shaped, and Rectangular Coins

Representations of goats appeared on ancient Roman coins over 2,000 years ago. China issued its first goat coins in 1991, and will again strike silver and gold "Year of the Goat" commemoratives dated 2003 (available in early November). In a departure from previous years, the reverses of China's new lunar-zodiac coins feature a decorative goat design in the style of the Han Dynasty (202 BC - 220 AD).

These "Year of the Goat" coins are available as flower-shaped 1 oz. pure silver (6,000 minted) for $68, fan-shaped 1 oz. pure silver (66,000 minted) for $55, and rectangular 5 oz. pure silver (1,888 minted) for $275. Year of the Goat coins are also available in pure gold as follows: flower-shaped 1/2 oz. 2,300 minted) for $425, fan-shaped 1/2 oz. (6,000 minted) for $395, and rectangular 5 oz. (118 minted, call for current price). Orders can be sent to official distributor PandaAmerica, 3460 Torrance Blvd., Suite 100, Torrance, CA 90503 or phoned in to (800) 472-6327.

Goats have been associated with both Western and Eastern astrology since ancient times. When astrological symbolism arose, Capricorn was based on two kinds of goats -- domestic and wild. The two are emblematic of Capricorns' dual natures -- dour and taciturn or feisty strength and strong humor. Those born in the Chinese lunar-zodiac "Year of the Goat" - like Michelangelo and Mohammed Ali -- are said to be charming, artistic and successful.
