Product Description

In the Chinese zodiac, the rooster holds a special place as one of the twelve animal signs. Those born in the Year of the Rooster are known for their qualities of hard work, punctuality, confidence, and keen observation. This birth year is considered highly auspicious, and now you have the opportunity to acquire the 2005 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Rooster Coin, conveniently available for purchase online from BGASC.


  • Each coin is carefully encased in its individual protective capsule!
  • This coin represents the 10th release in the prestigious Australian Lunar Series I collection!
  • Limited mintage of 19,729 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of pure .9999 gold.
  • Officially designated with a face value of $100 (AUD) by Australia.
  • The obverse side features a regal portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The reverse side showcases a majestic rooster standing on a mound with the rising sun on the horizon.

These 2005 1 oz Australian Gold Lunar Rooster Coins come with their individual protective capsules. Despite the initial mintage cap set at 30,000 coins, the final mintage reached just 19,729 coins, making this coin the fifth-highest mintage among 1 oz Gold Lunar Series I coins.


The obverse side of the 2005 1 oz Gold Lunar Rooster Coin proudly features Queen Elizabeth II in her fourth-generation bust. Displayed in right-profile relief, she wears the elegant Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This exquisite design, created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, made its debut in 1999 as part of the Lunar Series I program.


Turning to the reverse side of the 2005 Australian Gold Rooster Coin, you’ll find a captivating portrayal of a rooster standing proudly on a mound of earth and grass, heralding the dawn with the sun rising in the distance.


In Chinese Buddhism, the rooster is sometimes depicted alongside Dizang Pusa, also known as Earth Store Bodhisattva. This bodhisattva is associated with the afterlife and is believed to protect souls in the underworld. The rooster is said to serve as a messenger between the living and the deceased, helping guide souls on their journey.
