The Lunar Series II coin program from the Perth Mint has reached its first major milestone with the 10th release in the series. The coins are released featuring animals on the Zodiac, with each new design devoted to the animal appearing on that given year’s Chinese Lunar Calendar.

2017 is the Year of the Rooster, and the all-new design from the Perth Mint focuses on the rooster. Those born under the sign of the rooster have sociable and loyal tendencies, and are believed to be hardworking and honest.

On the obverse of all 2017 Proof Silver Australian Rooster coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, the image is featured along with engravings of “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” “1/2 oz. 9999 Ag,” “2017,” and “50 Cents.”

The reverse of the 2017 ½ oz Proof Silver Australian Rooster Coin includes the image of a rooster keeping a watchful eye out while a hen and three chicks eat among the bamboo foliage and flowers. Engravings read “Year of the Rooster,” “P” for the Perth Mint, and the Chinese symbol for rooster.

All 2017 ½ oz Proof Silver Australian Rooster Coins in this listing are proof specimens that are part of the larger series of Lunar II coin releases for 2017. The silver coins include a 1 Kilo, 2 oz, and 1 oz option in addition to this coin, with a 3-coin set featuring the 2 oz, 1 oz, and 2017 ½ oz Proof Silver Australian Rooster.

Perth Mint is the oldest operating facility in Australia. It was once responsible, along with the Melbourne Mint, in the 20th century for striking Australian coinage. The Currency Act of 1965 gave legal tender status to Perth Mint coins, but also founded the Royal Australian Mint as the federal, sovereign mint.

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 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.
