2017 Year of the Rooster Gold Coins

The Chinese zodiac is a classification scheme that assigns an animal to each year in a repeating twelve-year cycle. The 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac is an approximation to the 11.86-year cycle of Jupiter. Chinese astrology has a history of more than 3,000 years. 12 animals were designated to symbolize each of the cycles in order to be better remembered.

The Chinese new year started January 28th.
