The Royal Mint is one of the leading producers of lunar-themed coins each year. Its unique Shengxiao Series is one of just a handful offered by sovereign mints celebrating the impact of Chinese culture around the globe. Today, the 2017 1 oz Silver British Rooster Coin is available in BU condition on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships in a plastic flip, mint tube of 25, or sealed Monster Box of 500 coins.
  • Fourth coin in the Royal Mint’s Shengxiao Series!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Face value of £2 (GBP) is fully backed by the United Kingdom.
  • Obverse features the image of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse bears the latest Shengxiao Series design for the Year of the Rooster.
  • Available in BU condition.

Lunar-themed coins have only increased in popularity in the last two decades following the 1996 release of the first Lunar Series from the Perth Mint in Australia. The Royal Mint’s Shengxiao Series, its own themed series with Zodiac-inspired designs, debuted in 2014 with the Year of the Horse.

Shengxiao Series coins are all designed by Wuon-Gean Ho, a British-Chinese citizen who fuses British and Chinese culture together in each of the designs for the popular series of coins. Available in both gold and silver, the Royal Mint’s imagery in the Shengxiao Series is one of a kind.

The reverse side of each 2017 1 oz Silver British Rooster Coin includes the unique Year of the Rooster design, and bears engravings that read “Year of the Rooster,” “2017,” and include the Chinese symbol for rooster.

On the obverse is the latest image of Queen Elizabeth II. Jody Clark created this fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty in July 2015, and at the age of 33 he became the youngest Royal Mint engraver and artist ever to create a portrait of the Queen for coinage.

Each 2017 1 oz Silver British Rooster Coin in this Silver.com listing is a Brilliant Uncirculated coin. You’ll notice no signs of wear and tear on the surfaces, though flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks are possible.

The Royal Mint was founded in 886 by Alfred the Great as the London Mint. This marked the origin of the Royal Mint as a single institution, though multiple sites existed throughout the British kingdom until 1279.

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.

How can I contact you?

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.
