Artistic Year of the Rooster Design
On the obverse is the National Memorial Chorten, which is sometimes referred to as the Thimphu Chorten. The stunning white and gold of the memorial contrast with the deep blue of the sky and green of the trees in the distance to make for a breathtaking image.
The reverse design is based on the notion of a "crowing rooster among the clouds." Shown in left-side profile, the proud rooster bears a puffy neckline and a towering crest. It has its curled tail raised and thrusts its inflated chest forward, as though preparing to wake the world with its 'cock-a-doodle-doo!' Inscriptions along the rim offer the name of the coin, "YEAR OF THE ROOSTER," its face value, "NU. 1000," and its weight and purity, "5 OZ 9999 FINE SILVER."
