People born in the Year of the Rooster are deep thinkers, capable and talented. They like to be busy, devoting themselves beyond their capabilities, and are deeply disappointed if they fail. People born in the Rooster Year are often a bit eccentric and often have rather difficult relationships with others. They always think they are right and usually are!

They frequently are loners, and though they give the outward impression of being adventurous, they are timid. Rooster people's emotions, like their fortunes, swing very high to very low. They can be selfish and too outspoken, but are always interesting and can be extremely brave. They are most compatible with Ox, Snake and Dragon.

The Canadian 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf coin was first minted in 1988 following the success of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf that launched in 1979. Issued annually, this bullion coin is made from .9999 fine Silver, making it one of the finest bullion coins in the world. Although the Royal Canadian Mint produces other Silver bullion coins, the Silver Maple Leaf is by the far the most popular among collectors and investors alike.

Before the birth of the Royal Canadian Mint, every coin that was in circulation in Canada had to be produced at the Royal Mint in London or at the private Heaton Mint in Birmingham, England. So, in 1890, the Royal Canadian Mint was proposed and 18 years later on January 2, 1908 Canadian Governor General Lord Earl Gray struck the first domestically produced coin in Ottawa. Since then, the Royal Canadian Mint has been known for its exceptional quality, sophistication and innovation.

The Silver Maple Leaf has undergone some changes in its design, but overall, the main elements of this iconic Silver coin have remained the same. The obverse of the coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II while the reverse displays a maple leaf, an image closely associated with Canadian pride and nationalism. In 2014, a micro-engraved, textured maple leaf featuring the year of issue and a radial-line background were added to ensure the authenticity of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. In addition to the added security, these features also add to the beauty of each individual coin, as each pattern of radial lines is unique and creates a specific light-diffracting pattern.

Lunar Series Rooster... NICE!

By  cautery

5.0

Coin I received was spotless and likely could score in the very high 60s. This is for an album collection though. Lunar Series allows me to feed my SML habit relatively cheaply... cheaper than racing cars!

Pros

  • Easy to Sell
  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Recognized Brand
