Highland Mint is one of the few private mints in the world today striking silver rounds with lunar-themed designs. The Highland Mint series of silver lunar rounds launched four years ago with the Year of the Horse design, followed by the Sheep, Monkey, and now the 2017 1 oz Silver Highland Mint Rooster Round.
Each of the new designs in the series features only the animal represented on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. For 2017, it is the Year of the Rooster, which represents individuals born in 2017 and every 12th year going backward in time. Those born in the Year of the Rooster are believed to be honest and loyal, as well as hardworking and sociable.
The reverse side of each 2017 1 oz Silver Highland Mint Rooster Round features the unique Year of the Rooster design, which includes engravings of “Year of the Rooster” above the design field and the Chinese symbol for the rooster below the design.
On the obverse of the Silver Highland Mint Rooster Round you’ll find the elemental design, which includes in the center of it periodic table of elements square for silver. It includes engravings of “Ag” and “silver” inside the table. Surrounding it are the markings of “1 Troy Ounce,” “.999,” “Fine Silver,” and “Made in the U.S.A.”
Highland Mint is a private minting facility in the United States that operates a 40,000 square foot refining facility in Melbourne, Florida. It is best known as a producer of professional and collegiate precious metal memorabilia.
