Brisbane Bullion presents the 10oz Lunar 2015 – Year of the Goat minted silver bullion investment bar by NTR. Whether as a gift, to celebrate a birthday or as an investment, this 10oz silver bar is sure to impress.
Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle.
Traditionally, the first year of the lunar cycle is ‘ruled’ by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.
In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. The goat is the eighth sign of the Chinese zodiac. The goat is a symbol of independence and curiosity and those born under the influence of the sign are said to be elegant, charming, artistic, gifted and calm. People born in the Year of the Goat are artistic, kind, inspired, very empathetic, and naturally creative. They appreciate beauty in all its forms and have a tendency to be introspective.
This 10oz silver minted bar would make a special gift for anyone born with the Chinese Lunar Zodiac sign of the Goat, or for parents who welcomed a child born between 19 February 2015 to 7 February 2016.
