2017 1oz UK Lunar Year of the Rooster Second Choice Gold Coins

These Second Choice 2017 1oz Year of the Rooster Gold Coins are a smart way to add fine .9999 gold to your portfolio. Popular with investors and stackers, second choice gold coins have the same purity and gold content as brilliant uncirculated Year of the Rooster 1oz coins yet they sell for less because of various tiny flaws and imperfections. 

A second chance to buy 1oz UK Lunar Year of the Rooster Gold Coins

Issued in 2017, the UK Lunar Series 1oz Year of the Rooster Gold coin is the fourth in the Royal Mint's limited mintage Shēngxiào collection. Second Choice gold coins such as the 1oz Year of the Rooster are ideal for those who want to create a budget-friendly Lunar UK collection and they're incredibly popular with investors since they represent exceptional value for money.  

Each Second Choice 1oz Year of the Rooster gold coin has the same basic details as BU gold coins from the UK Lunar Series. These include outstanding purity and a unique reverse design that incorporates facets of both Chinese and British culture. For 2017, artist Wuon-Gean Ho portrayed a magnificent rooster with 10 marsh daisy flowers in the foreground. While many collectors may have picked up on the significance of the number 10 – it traditionally signifies perfection in China – fewer will be aware that the rooster pictured is a Marsh Daisy, a rare breed of hen that originates from Lancashire.
