Royal Canadian Mint Silver Lunar Coins
These Silver Lunar coins feature the lunar calendar introduced by Emperor Huan Ti in 2637 B.C. The Chinese lunar calendar consists of a 12-year cycle, with each year featuring a different representative animal: the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. These Canadian Silver coins
feature each animal, which is believed to influence the events and political and economic conditions of its year, as well as the personality of individuals born during its cycle.
