Description

A golden celebration of the year of the cockerel by Pobjoy Mint on behalf of the Isle of Man.

Eastern tradition has long held that the gift of a gold coin will bring good luck to the bearer throughout that particular Chinese Lunar New Year. 

The history of the Chinese lunar calendar goes back to ancient times where it made its first appearance during the east Han Dynasty. Ancient China's agricultural society was mainly illiterate, and so it was only natural that animals were chosen as shorthand symbols of the twelve earthly branches - an ancient system of dividing the day in to twelve hours. It was only later that the signs developed into the horoscope which represents all men and women born in the same year, and is said to affect their personality, character and success. This beautiful 24ct gold IOM collector's coin is the perfect gift for all born in this auspicious year.

Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
