This select $5 silver domed coin celebrates the 2020 Year of the Rat in the

Chinese lunar calendar. Featuring a magnificent obverse design of the

twelve-year lunar calendar wheel, this coin would make an ideal gift to

wish Fu (Happiness), Lu (Wealth) and Shou (Longevity) to all in the Year

of the Rat.

The Rat is the first sign of the twelve-year lunar calendar: this reflects the

traditional story of how the Jade Emperor had the twelve animals of the

zodiac race across a river to decide what order they would go in. Clever

Rat hitched a ride on the strong Ox and managed to come first. People

born under the sign of the Rat are also considered to be clever,

quick-witted and resourceful.

The year 2020 falls under the sign of the metal Rat. People born under

this sign are talented, self-aware and persuasive, with the gift of a silver

tongue. This silver domed coin is the ideal gift for anyone born under the

sign of the Rat. It is also traditional to exchange gifts of coins during the

internationally recognised Chinese New Year celebration.
