In Chinese culture, people born in the Year of the Rabbit - 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011 - are regarded as intelligent, articulate, compassionate, and loyal.

Chinese Lunar-Zodiac coins are very popular in China and throughout the world. According to the Chinese Lunar-Zodiac, the Year 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit--which begins on February 3, 2011 and ends on January 22, 2012. The Rabbit is considered a lucky sign. Rabbits are private individuals and a bit introverted. People born in the Year of the Rabbit are friendly individuals who enjoy the company of a group of good friends. They are good teachers, counselors and communicators, and make great painters or musicians due to their sense of beauty and their love of creativity. They love hunting for antiques, arts and crafts and will tend to make sound investments in these types of things.
