The 2017 release in the Lunar Series II program marks the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Perth Mint’s popular program features new annual releases throughout the 12-year cycle of the program and the Zodiac. Today, the 2017 10 oz Silver Australian Rooster Coin is available as a BU specimen on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships in a plastic capsule to protect the coin’s condition.
  • Tenth coin in the Lunar Series II program from the Perth Mint.
  • Consists of Ten Troy ounces of .999 fine silver in BU condition.
  • Face value of $10 (AUD) is fully backed by Australia’s government.
  • Obverse features the image of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse includes the unique Year of the Rooster design.

There are a total of 12 animals in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, each of which was included in the Zodiac based upon its arrival at a meeting called by the Jade Emperor. The emperor had called the animals of the world to a meeting, but only these 12 arrived.

The placement of each animal in the 12-year cycle was based upon their completion of the Great Race, the contest to arrive at the meeting called by the Jade Emperor. Each animal brings character traits and emotions to those born under their sign, with the Year of the Rooster representing honesty, loyalty, hard work, and a sociable attitude.

On the reverse of the 2017 10 oz Silver Australian Rooster Coin is the image of a rooster, with a hen nearby and three chicks searching for food among the local foliage and flowers. Engravings identify the mint’s mark, the name of the coin issue, and the Chinese symbol for the rooster.

The obverse of all Australian coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this image is the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to appear on Australian coins since her ascension to the throne of England in 1952.

Each 2017 10 oz Silver Australian Rooster Coin in this listing is a BU product. Coins with a Brilliant Uncirculated grade exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but may feature flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the coining process.

Perth Mint is Australia’s oldest operating facility. Originally opened in 1899 as the final of three Royal Mint facilities, it is the last remaining facility from that system. Today, it is owned by the state government of Western Australia and operate autonomously of the federal government’s Royal Australian Mint in Canberra.

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.
