To celebrate the lunar year in the new millennium, the British Royal Mint has specially stuck a limited issue of the gold proof medal. The lunar series includes twelve 5oz gold proof medals and they are minted with a sophisticated striking technique. Each medal bears a frosted relief against a mirror-like background.

The Chinese horoscope is divided into interlocking sets of ten Celestial Stems and Twelve Terrestrial Branches. Each Stem and BRanch is named with a Chinese character. The year is recorded by pairing the names of a Stem and a BRanch. A complete cycle takes 60 years and is made up of five 12 year cycles.

The origin of the twelve lunar animals is a mystery. Chinese legend has it that Buddha summoned all animals before he left the earth. Only twelve came to bid him farewell. As a reward, Buddha endowed each of the twelve animals with a year in the order of their arrival. They were rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, cockerel, dog and pig, in chronological order. They are now known as the 12 lunar animal symbols. All are real animals except the dragon which is a mythical creation.

This 5oz king size gold proof medal is very rare and has a worldwide issue limit of 150pc only.

Each medal or set comes with a deluxe presentation box, a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a Chinese zodiac souvenir booklet.
