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 design by Canadian artist Aries Cheung features a stylized depiction of the rooster. Detailed engraving captures the essence of the animal’s character: observant and self-confident. Walking with a confident strut, the rooster is depicted in side profile to allow a glimpse of the swirls and flourishes that recreate its feathered appearance as the sun rises up on the right side, above the Chinese character for “rooster”. On the reverse the inscriptions: “15 Dollars” - the face value, “2017” - the issue year and “Canada” - the issue country. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
