Mintage of only 688 coins! In 2017, the Shengxiào Lunar Collection from the Royal Mint continues with the fourth coin in the series celebrating the Year of the Rooster. 

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Gold.
  • Comes in a mint box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
  • Mintage of only 688 coins.
  • Obverse: Displays the fifth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the face value of 100 pounds.
  • Reverse: Features a Marsh Daisy Rooster, along with the inscription "Year of the Rooster," and the weight, purity and year.
  • Official legal tender backed by British government.


Each lunar animal is believed to display their own characteristics and, like the rooster strutting through the farmyard, crowing to attract attention, people born in the Year of the Rooster are believed to be confident characters who love to stand out from the crowd.

The rooster shown in this design is a Marsh Daisy from the Lancashire area of northern England. The ten flowers in the foreground are also called Marsh Daisies (or sea-thrift). In Chinese culture the number ten is believed to symbolize perfection and, as the rooster is also the tenth animal in the zodiac cycle, this year promises to bring luck and prosperity. 

Each mintage incorporates the number eight, also believed to be lucky in Chinese culture. The Shengxiào Collection celebrates the 12-year Lunar calendar and its traditions in a unique fusion of Chinese and British heritage. Following the success of the coins struck in the years of the Horse, Sheep and Monkey, this coin features the Rooster and is presented in strictly limited mintages. 

This year’s coin is once more designed by British-Chinese artist Wuon-Gean Ho, whose cultural heritage makes her the ideal artist to convey the meeting of east and west. Wuon-Gean has created a beautiful and dynamic design that captures the energy and agility of the intelligent rooster. With work in collections at the Tate and the Victoria and Albert Museum, this is Wuon-Gean’s fourth commission for The Royal Mint.
