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.

The rarest British Lunar thus far....

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

This seems to be the rarest of all the British Lunanr mint coins released to date (as thru 2018). For some reason, these have disappeared from the secondary market. Will Apmex get any more in? If so, you'd be smart to jump on them; as the British Mint Lunar series garners more attention, you'll certainly see premium appreciation.


  • Pros
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand
  • Cons
  • Unattractive Design
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
