About British Shengxiao Lunar Series Gold Coins

The Royal Mint’s Shengxiao Lunar Series is a unique collection of premium gold coins that blend the traditions of the British Empire with the timeless astrological calendar of ancient China. Manufactured to the highest bullion standards and made from 99.99% pure gold, the 12-coin edition has limited mintage, making them a highly sought after investment asset that qualifies for Individual Retirement Accounts.

History of British Gold Shengxiao Lunar Series Coins

The Shengxiao collection is the Royal Mint's first ever lunar collection and began in 2014 to celebrate the Chinese year of the Horse. The British Mint will release one coin a year ending with the snake in 2025.

Thanks to the prestige and uniqueness of the coins, the British Shengxiao gold coins rival the Perth Mint's Lunar series and are tipped to surpass the already successful Australian collection.

The British Shengxiao collection pays tribute to the ancient Chinese zodiac and combines the traditions of these two great nations in a series of gold coins that promise to be popular assets that provide investors with increased spending power. The release schedule for coins available for Gold IRAs is as follows:

- Year of the Horse (2014)
- Year of the Sheep (2015)
- Year of the Monkey (2016)
- Year of the Rooster (2017)
- Year of the Dog (2018)
- Year of the Pig (2019)
- Year of the Rat (2020)
- Year of the Ox (2021)
- Year of the Tiger (2022)
- Year of the Rabbit (2023)
- Year of the Dragon (2024)
- Year of the Snake (2025)

Why buy British Gold Shengxiao Coins?

Regarded as the world’s most prestigious precious metals refinery, investors that acquire gold coins from the British Royal Mint are assured of the highest quality products, and the gold Shengxiao coins are no exception.

Made from 24-karat gold, the Shengxiao lunar series are a unique range of highly collectable gold coins, and because the mintage is limited, promise to be even more valuable than the current gold spot price.

British gold coins are recognised all over the world and have high liquidity. Not only that, but gold is a valuable asset that consistently performs well during a downturn in the economy, thus represents an excellent opportunity to diversify your retirement portfolio.

Design of British Shengxiao Lunar Series Gold Coins

The 12 coins celebrated in the British Shengxiao Lunar series have a different design each year to reflect the animal that aligns with the lunar calendar of the ancient Chinese.

Each of the designs are rendered by British-born Chinese artist Wuon-Gaen-Ho who was commissioned by the Royal Mint to create a dynamic collection of motifs that reflect the traditions of Britain and China.

The obverse side of the coins feature the right-facing bust of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by the Royal Mints official engravers. The 2014 and 2015 editions are the work of Ian Rank-Broadley and the 2016 version to date were realised by Jody Clark. The coins also bear the Latin inscription “Elizabeth II Dei Gra Regina Fid Def” which means “By the Grace of God, Queen-Defender of the Faith.”

As a retired Catholic, veteran and union transport worker I was anxious about doing something kinda out of scope for someone of similar background. But fuggetaboutit these guys answered all my concerns and made what I thought would be a long story short. Honest, patriotic and God loving they made my choice easy. They can do the same for you too.
