The Perth Mint’s beautiful 2017 1/2 oz Australian Gold Rooster Coin celebrates the Year of the Rooster, the 10th of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. The birth dates for those ruled by the Chinese Lunar rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, and 2017. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be hardworking, loyal, honest, and sociable.
1/2 oz Australian Gold Rooster Coins are struck from .9999 pure gold. 1/2 oz Gold Rooster Coins are backed by the Commonwealth of Australia. They are legal tender under the Australian Currency Act of 1965 and have a face value of $50 Australian dollars. 
On the back of the coin, a rooster is pictured looking up at the Chinese character for rooster surrounded by bamboo leaves along with the inscription, “Year of the Rooster.” There is also a “P” mint mark symbolizing the Perth Mint, which is widely-known for producing some of the highest quality bullion coins in the world. 
Ian Rank-Broadley’s regal effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is on the front of the coin along with weight, purity, year-date, and currency denomination. 
The limited mintage of the 1/2 oz Gold Rooster coin makes it a great gift and favorite among collectors - but it’s bullion pricing and pure gold content also make it a suitable investment.
