No mintage limit applies to 1kg, 10oz, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, and 1/20oz coins. However, production will close at the end of 2017 when The Perth Mint will declare each coin's official mintage.
The Perth Mint will produce no more than 30,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly collectable and is sure to sell out fast.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The reverse of each gold coin depicts a rooster standing in a stylised Chinese scene featuring bamboo and leaves. The design also incorporates the Chinese character for ‘rooster’, the inscription ‘Year of the Rooster’, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date and monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.
Each bullion coin is presented in protective acrylic capsules.
