This Brilliant Uncirculated coin features a brand new design for the year 2015, which happens to be the Year of the Sheep. In fact, it is the second coin designed by Wuon-Gean Ho, the British Chinese artist who is responsible for the mint’s Shengxiào Collection.
- Contains 1 oz of .9999 pure gold.
- Minted at the Royal Mint in Great Britain.
- Features a Lunar Sheep design.
- Available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
This collection of coins celebrates the Chinese Lunar Calendar, which features 12 animals. Each animal presides over several different years. 2014 was the Year of the Horse, so the first coin in the Shengxiào Collection featured horses, while this year’s features 2 sheep on one side of the coin. The sheep symbolize family and companionship, so if these qualities are important to you, this coin may be right for your collection.
In between the 2 sheep on the coin is the Chinese character for this animal. Above it are the phrases “Year of the Sheep 2015” and “1 oz. Fine Gold 999.9.” The back of the coin celebrates a British cultural icon, Queen Elizabeth II. It proudly features her image and title, followed by “100 pounds,” which is the coin’s British denomination.
