    Where is the proud Rooster what a weak coin, am I missing something - whats with the 4 branches in semi circles, RAM should consider employing a designer who has a clue. Good purchase at spot.

    Poor interpretation of Chinese Lunar zodiac/mythology

    Oh thank goodness... I thought I was the only one who doesn't really like the RAM designs.

    In general their coins have pretty ugly designs. Well perhaps they do have an appeal to certain people as beauty is subjective, so I'm not judging, but they're just not to my taste at all.

    That's a sick looking chook (and not in a good way). Amoebic dysentery judging by the close ups of the pathology slides around the outside.

    Razz - Did you design this coin yourself?

    I dont like the "4 branches in semi circles" as Clear put it either but if you compare the workmanship in the actual roosters details.. its feathers, comb etc this has better detail than the Perth Mint or the Royal Mint ones.

    Sorry, but what country does this bullion coin come from? What is RAM? Royal Australian Mint? Royal Austrian Mint?

    What is the primary difference between the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint? I thought I read that the Royal Australian Mint produces coins for circulation. The Perth Mint produces collector coins. Is that correct?

    Not a fan of this design, I think the CuNi looks much better, when did RAM stop doing 2 lunar designs in silver 2015 Or is it that they did an extra design for the horse in 2014?

    I have to say not as good as the 2017 design by China. the gold and silver design is from the famous Chinese painter Xu Beihong's painting.
