Year Of The Rooster
People born in a year of the Rooster are very observant. Hardworking, resourceful, courageous and talented, Roosters are very confident about themselves. Roosters are always active, amusing and popular among the crowd. Roosters are talkative, outspoken, frank, open, honest, and loyal individuals. They like to be the center of attention and always appear attractive and beautiful. Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering. They enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charm at any occasion. Roosters expect others to listen to them while they speak, and can become agitated if others don't. Vain and boastful, Roosters like to brag about themselves and their accomplishments.

The reverse of the coin commemorates 2017 as the Year of the Rooster with an intricate side profile view of its animal representative. Detailed engraving recreates the rooster’s feathered appearance and captures the essence of the animal’s character: observant, resourceful and self-assured. Other elements associated with this sign are artfully incorporated into the design — including the outline of five gladiolus flowers, which also represent the Rooster’s lucky number, “5.” The reverse also features the engraved Chinese character for “rooster”. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the face value: “15 Dollars”, the issue year: “2017” and the issue country – “Canada”.
