Lunar-themed products are nothing new in the numismatic world. Perth Mint coins are an excellent example of an annual release series that collectors covet because there is a new design each year. PAMP Suisse took their lunar series to a new level with a continuous design concept.
Rather than using the Year of the Rooster, or applicable lunar year, design on just one side, the refiners at PAMP created a continuous concept with their designs. This means you view the Year of the Rooster image on one side of the bar from one point of view, and when you flip it over the design on the opposite side is the same, but from a different point of view.
For example, on the obverse of the 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Rooster Gold Bar you’ll notice the left-profile stance of the rooster as it perches at the edge of a rocky outcrop. It is featured looking back over its body behind it with long plumage on its tail.
Flip to the reverse of the 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Rooster Gold Bar and what you see is that same rooster, but from a right-profile point of view as you would see it from a different angle. You are seeing a different side of the rooster’s body, and the rocky outcrop goes from left to right on the bar’s surface rather than right to left.
Each 100 Gram PAMP Suisse Lunar Rooster Gold Bar has a marking on the obverse denoting the Chinese symbol for rooster. The reverse side has engravings of the mint name, the bar’s weight, its metal content, and the purity of the gold, as well as an individual serial number and assayer’s mark.
All PAMP Suisse Lunar Rooster Bars ship inside of the mint’s CertiPamp sealed plastic packaging. Included within the packing is a Certificate of Authenticity, which verifies the serial number as visible on the bar. Serial numbers consist of a one-letter, six-number code.
