Description

The Lunar or Shēngxiào (生肖) coin series is a collection of British coins issued by the Royal Mint featuring the Chinese zodiac in celebration of Chinese New Year. First issued in 2014, the series has been minted in varying denominations of Silver and Gold as both bullion and proof.

A chance to pick up the limited and discontinued UK Lunar series in bullion consisting of the Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig, Rat.

All coins are 24 carat gold weighing 1 ounce.

Year of the Horse 2014

The reverse design consists of a galloping Horse set against the background of the pre-historic Uffington White Horse located in Oxfordshire. Lettering on the coin reads “YEAR OF THE HORSE · 2014 plus details of the mass and metal content of the coin. The Chinese character for Horse (馬) is displayed near the coin’s centre.

In March 2014, it was reported that a number of 1oz bullion coins had mistakenly been struck with the incorrect die. Around 38,000 of the Lunar Horse coins were struck with an obverse intended for the Britannia series while 17,000 Britannia coin were stuck with the obverse for the Lunar series.

Year of the Sheep 2015

The reverse design consists of two Yorkshire Swaledale sheep facing each other and the background consists of a forest of trees.B As designer Wuon-Gean Ho explains “the ancient Chinese character for the word sheep looks a little bit like a tree” so the forest consists of a series of this character (羊).[3] This character is further displayed near the coin’s center. Across the top lettering reads “YEAR OF THE SHEEP · 2015″ plus details of the mass and metal content of the coin.

Year of the Monkey 2016

The reverse design features a leaping Rhesus monkey jumping forward from a tree with another monkey also jumping in the background.[4] Lettering on the coin reads “YEAR OF THE MONKEY· 2016″A plus details of the mass and metal content of the coin. The Chinese character for Monkey (猴) is displayed in the lower right of the coin. (Not Included in the Bundle)

Year of the Rooster 2017

The reverse design features a crowing rooster amongst ten sea thrift flowers, the number ten symbolising of perfection in Chinese culture.[5] Lettering on the coin reads “YEAR OF THE ROOSTER · 2017″A plus details of the mass and metal content of the coin. The Chinese character for Rooster (雞) is displayed near the coin’s centre. Unlike the previous coins in the series, the 2017 coin breaks the otherwise uniform smooth obverse design, opting for an obverse similar to that of the Britannia coin series.[6]

Year of the Dog 2018

Wuon-Gean explains on the Royal Mint’s site that “The reverse design is a picture of a very happy, bounding dog that is jumping for joy! This dog is a mix between a West-Highland white Terrier and a Jack Russell – it’s really wirey and really energetic; he also looks like he’s smiling because his mouth is slightly open and it seems like he’s leaping across the waves. In reality the background is a hidden story, I like to put hidden motifs in my coins so the background is actually created from a nose pattern of another dog. The nose print is unique to every dog so the nose print is a portrait of another animal that this dog is potentially playing with – it’s a story of a dog in a landscape but the landscape is not what you expect it to be. The signature is in the foreground of the landscape and it’s looks like a little shell on a beach – it’s just a motif that says “Wuon-Gean” in very old characters at the front of the coin.” The reverse design features the Chinese character (狗) displayed near the coin’s center.[7]

Year of the Pig 2019

The reverse design on this Royal Mint Shēngxiào Collection coin celebrates the Year of the Pig. The design by Harry Brockway represents these traits and the cultural traditions behind the lunar calendar, and shows a female pig (or sow) suckling five piglets. Brockway includes an English Cottage in the background. Each coin features the traditional Chinese symbol for ‘pig’ appears below the sow’s head ().[8]

Year of the Rat 2020

The rat is the seventh design in The Shēngxiào Collection and this coin was designed by illustrator P. J. Lynch. The design obviously features a rat itself, which had to be appealing and interesting. Lynch claims[9] he shows a rat as it twists, responding to a noise or something happening nearby. The rat is momentarily vulnerable, but also curious and unafraid. Lynch adds “As well as the twisting body I was able to have fun with the rat’s long curvy tail, which weaves its way around the composition through the flowers. I chose peonies because of their popularity in China and association with good luck. The arch of text frames the upper hemisphere of the design, and then the only other element is the Chinese character for ‘rat’. I have placed this so that the trailing stroke echoes the shape of the rat’s face and jaw. I wanted them to look like continental plates on a globe that might belong together.” The Chinese character for rat () is displayed near the coin’s centre.

Great honest advice

Great honest advice. I have used Bullion House over the past year and have found them to be professional and polite.

Small purchase arrived super quick

I ordered something small through the website as I was hesitant to make a big purchase as I haven’t used this company before, but the price was good for what I wanted so I thought I would try it out. The order arrived safely. They took the time to answer any questions I had, which I appreciated. I would definitely purchase from them again.

Bullion House are just super to deal with.

I just wanted to say that the guys at Bullion House are easy to deal with, informed, and very helpful. So, I am very, very pleased. Their service delivery blew me away. I recently ordered some Sovereigns which I expected to take a few days to arrive but the very next morning they turned up, not bad for pm order.

I will of course continue to rely on them for my bullion investments.


First purchase from this dealer

First purchase from this dealer. Coin arrived promptly in good condition with a follow-up phone call to make sure all was well and to chat about my interests/ investment aims. Would happily use again
