The Chinese Lunar Calendar follows a 12-year cycle known as the Zodiac. There is a different animal associated with each of the 12 years and those who are born under its sign are said to share the characteristics of those animals. The cycle is not random, with the Year of the Rat occurring first. Now, 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Rat Gold Bars are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

The Lunar Calendar Series from PAMP Suisse is the leading bullion bar selection with lunar-themed designs. Unlike its counterparts in bullion coinage, these gold bars for sale have no mintage cap. Although PAMP only produces a design during the year it appears on the lunar calendar, there is no shortage of opportunity to invest in each fresh designs.
Each animal in the Zodiac is assigned to a different position in the 12-year cycle based on a decision made by the Jade Emperor. Ancient mythology suggests the emperor called a meeting with the animals of the world, but only the 12 in the Zodiac responded to that call. Each is placed based on its arrival to that meeting. The crafty, resourceful rat convinced the hearty ox to give it a ride and jumped off the ox just before the finish line to cross first and appear at the start of the 12-year cycle.
On the obverse of 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Rat Gold Bars is the image of a rat. It is depicted standing on its hind legs on top of a stone wall as it clutches an ancient coin. This coin has a square hole in the center and four Chinese symbols on its face.
The reverse of 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Rat Bars offers up a different view of that same setting. This time, you view the rat from behind and can see its tail as it winds up the back of the rat’s body. This side of the bar has markings of the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number.
