Why does this 2017 Canada $15 Proof Silver Lunar Year of the Rooster belong in your collection?

The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) released this Silver Year of the Rooster to commemorate the lunar year in 2017. It is the 8th coin in the Mint's Lunar series, which celebrates the different animals of the Chinese Zodiac calendar. This coin was struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 pure silver with a face value of fifteen Canadian dollars and a fortunate mintage of just 10,888.

Canada's unique interpretation of the Chinese zodiac

The obverse of this coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II which was created by Susanna Blunt in 2003 and is the fourth portrait of the Queen to be used in Canadian coinage.

The Canadian-Chinese artist Aries Cheung designed the reverse of this 2017 Lunar Year of the Rooster. The image features a stylized rooster with the Chinese Character for "ROOSTER," set to the right of the image. "CANADA 2017," and the legal tender value "15 DOLLARS," are the inscriptions on the reverse.

Gem Proof with original Mint packaging

This coin was not graded by any third-party grading company but received the designation of "GEM Proof." That means if it were graded, the coin would fall between the grade of Proof 65 and Proof 70. Also, included is the original satin case and red sleeve provided by the RCM!
