The Shēngxiào Collection Continues with the Year of the Rat

Were you, or someone you know, born in the Year of the Rat?

1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008  

Quick thinking and willing to try new things, people born in the Year of the Rat are considered cheerful and they adapt to each situation they find themselves in.

As The Shēngxiào Collection continues with the seventh coin in the series, the Chinese zodiac cycle starts anew with the Year of the Rat. Celebrating this intelligent and inquisitive creature, P. J. Lynch brings these qualities to life in his design. A single rat crouches and sniffs the air, showcasing its agility and inquisitiveness.

Since 2014, the coins of The Shēngxiào Collection have celebrated each animal of the lunar calendar in turn. A fusion of British craftsmanship and Chinese tradition, each release is highly anticipated.
