In 2015 the Royal Mint issued this lovely First Day Cover, the second coin in the
Shengxiao Collection, the Lunar Sheep .
The collection was named to honour the Chinese zodiac,
and celebrates these wonderful customs, and began
with a coin celebrating the Year of the Horse,
These coins are a beautiful fusion of British and Chinese heritage.
The sheep is a prominent and popular figure in the Chinese culture,
believed to symbolise peace love and kindness.
This Silver Proof coin is housed in a numbered First Day Cover with accompanying stamps.
