According to the Chinese zodiac, it's the Rooster who rules the roost in 2017! A natural performer who does well in the public eye, the plucky Rooster won't shy away from being the centre of attention. You're likely to find yourself admiring this attractive personality, who likes to look sharp and strut his stuff; but the Rooster is also quick-minded, witty and perceptive—he'll talk to you about anything with enthusiasm! The self-assured Rooster in your life is likely to be a resourceful and honest hard worker—one whose decisive nature will help keep things running smoothly and on schedule. 

If you know someone born in the year 1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, or newborns in 2017, then this is a gift they will treasure forever! Order your coin today!
