The Perth Mint continues with its popular Lunar Series II coin program in 2017 with the release of the tenth design in the second series. The Year of the Rooster has arrived, and the Perth Mint has two different designs available for its silver and gold coins. The 2017 ½ oz Gold Australian Rooster Coin is available as a BU specimen today on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you in a protective plastic capsule.
  • Tenth design of Lunar Series II.
  • Consists of One-Half Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold.
  • Issued a face value of $50 (AUD) by the Australian government.
  • Reverse features the all-new Year of the Rooster design.
  • Obverse includes Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait.
  • BU specimens.

All of the coins in the Lunar Series II coin program represent a different animal from the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The Zodiac, as it is known, has 12 different animals assigned to each of the years in the 12-year cycle. The 10th animal in this cycle is the rooster, which represents loyalty, honesty, hard work, and a social nature.

The 12-year coin program known as Lunar Series II debuted in 2008 following the conclusion of the Lunar Series from Perth Mint, which ran from 1996 to 2007. Gold Australian Rooster coins are available in weights from 1/20 Troy ounce up to 1 Kilogram.

On the obverse of all 2017 ½ oz Gold Australian Rooster Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of Her Majesty is the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen since her coronation as Queen of England.

The reverse of all 2017 Gold Australian Rooster Coins includes a depiction of the rooster. This all-new design features just one rooster in the middle of the design field, with engravings surrounding that read “Year of the Rooster,” “P” for the Perth Mint’s mark, and the Chinese symbol for rooster.

All 2017 ½ oz Gold Australian Rooster Coins in this product listing are BU coins. A Brilliant Uncirculated specimen exhibits no signs of wear and tear, but you may notice flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process.

Lunar Series II coins are produced by the Perth Mint. A state-owned entity of Western Australia, the Perth Mint is the oldest operating facility in the country. The Currency Act of 1965 gave Perth Mint coins legal tender status, but also established the federal sovereign mint at the Royal Australian Mint.

We encourage Silver.com customers to ask questions when they arise. You can call us at 888-989-7223, chat with us online, or simply email us.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
