According to the Chinese zodiac, the Rooster rules the roost in 2017. In an on-going celebration of traditional Chinese-Canadian culture, this fine silver coin by the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates 2017 as the Year of the Rooster and honours all those born under its sign.

The reverse design commemorates the Year of the Rooster with a stylised depiction of a rooster. Detailed engraving recreates its familiar appearance and captures the essence of the animal’s character: observant, resourceful and self-assured. Other symbolic elements are artfully incorporated into the design, including the gladiola flowers that are traditionally associated with this sign, as well as the Chinese character for “rooster”.
