Wake up to a New Year

year-of-the-rooster-reverse             year-of-the-rooster-obverse

According to the Chinese zodiac, the year 2017 is ruled by the Rooster. The Rooster loves to be the centre of attention; witty and self-assured, he or she can talk about anything! A natural performer, he or she does amazingly well in any career that puts him or her in the public eye. The Rooster is astute, organized and decisive—put him or her in charge, and your life and finances will run like clockwork!

The coin features the 24-karat gilded image of a rooster in the middle of a ring made of real jade. Along the rim of your coin is a refined and intricately patterned ornament depicting several roosters in different settings.

The State Emblem of Laos is depicted on the obverse of your silver coin. Along the rim of the coin, there is the legend denoting the name of the issuing country.
