This product listing provides you a limited opportunity to obtain all three 2017 Proof Australian Gold Rooster coins in one purchase. This 2017 Proof Australian Gold Rooster 3-Coin set includes the 1 oz, oz, and 1/10 oz coins in the 2017 release. Each coin contains its true weight in .9999 pure gold.
Maximum mintage was set extremely low for each of the individual coins in this series, a hallmark of the Lunar Series II gold coins since 2008. Of the 8.000 coins in oz. and 1/10 oz. weights, just 1,500 are available for this set. The 1,500 1 oz. coins come from an even smaller maximum mintage of 6,000.
All of the coins in this 2017 Proof Australian Gold Rooster 3-Coin Set arrive inside of an oval Perth Mint shipping box, with black velvet inside, a black glossy finish, and a timber-themed lid. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included, and the box ships inside of a Year of the Rooster themed shipper.
On the reverse of each Proof Australian Gold Rooster coin is the image of a lone rooster standing on just one leg amidst the bamboo leaves and flowers of China. Engravings identify the Perth Mint and name of the issue.
The obverse of all 2017 Proof Australian Gold Rooster Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, this image is considered the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty to feature on Australian coinage.
Perth Mint was formerly part of the Royal Mint system in the country after its founding in 1899. After Australian federation, the Perth Mint and Melbourne Mint handled coining duties for the nation, but the Currency Act of 1965 established the Royal Australian Mint as the new sovereign mint of the country. Today, Perth Mint is owned by the state government of Western Australia.
