2017 Tokelau 5 Dollar 1-oz Silver Mirror Rooster Proof
We're Seeing Double with This Mirrored Rooster Proof!
Our buyers have been crowing about this 2017 Silver Mirror Rooster Proof ever since they heard about it from the Mint of Norway. And for good reason! First of all, it's a lunar coin celebrating 2017 as the latest Year of the Rooster. Those born in a Year of the Rooster (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017) are considered to be loyal, sociable, honest and observant while possessing a keen "sixth sense." If you or someone you know was born in one of these years, this proof already has your sign . . . literally!
But what makes this coin truly special is its mirrored rooster design. One half has the appearance of a regular proof, with a mirrored field and frosted features. The other half flips it over with a frosted field and polished Rooster -- just like a reverse proof! It's a beautifully artistic take that requires a tremendous amount of skill to pull off. Fortunately, as the mint for the Nobel Prize, the Mint of Norway knows quite a bit about producing awe-inspiring work.
Each 2017 Mirror Rooster Proof is struck in one ounce of 99.9% silver and is legal tender five New Zealand dollars for the island country of Tokelau. Your proof will arrive in a special presentation case along with a certificate of authenticity. Lunar coins are extremely popular, with collectors in China and around the world buying them as soon as they hit the market. With an extremely limited mintage of 500 proofs, we're expecting these to leave our vaults in short order. Don't wait for these to fly the coop -- secure yours today!
