2020 Lunar Rat PAMP Gold Bar
The First Sign from the 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac, ‘The Rat’. The ‘Rat’ is said to be intelligent, quick-thinkers and successful individuals but are also content with living a calm and serene life. A Year of “Creative Energy”.
According to myth, the Jade Emperor said that the order in the Chinese Zodiac will depend on the order of each animal arriving at his party. The ‘Rat’ possessing intelligence and quick-thinking tricked the ‘OX’ into providing him with a ride to the party. Upon nearing the finishing line, the ‘Rat’ leapt ahead of the ‘OX’ arriving first and becoming first.
The Chinese culture believes that the Rat is seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Generally a good year for all those that seek wealth. In the case of married couples, Chinese believe that praying during this period, will allow them to reproduce offsprings. The ‘Rats’ are also closely associated with ‘Ying-Yang’, in which they represent ‘Yang’ signifying the beginning of a new day.
The 2020 Lunar Rat is available in other sizes: 1Oz & 5 Grams
