NEW ~ 2015 Year Of The Goat - Big Horns Ram 1oz Silver Coloured Proof Tokelau Coin ~
In this striking coin design we see a large big horned ram standing proudly against a backdrop of Yellow Mountain, Alberta, in Summer hues.
Occupying the 8th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Goat (or Sheep) symbolizes such character traits as creativity, intelligence, dependability, and calmness.
Those born in the Year of the Goat possess a powerful commitment to those they love. Often hopelessly romantic, goat people care deeply about family and always wish to remain at the side of their loved ones. In the Chinese tradition, the character for Goat and Sheep / Ram is the same, and while many depictions in the west focus on the Goat, some people prefer to see a Sheep or Ram. This stunning new coin from Tokelau satisfy that desire!
Big Horned Ram
The Big Horned Ram is found widely in the United States, Canada and North Mexico. The Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep is the provincial mammal of Alberta and the state animal of Colorado. It got its name from the male’s impressive horns which can weigh up to 14kgs. Females also have horns, but they are smaller and less curved.
