PAMP Suisse Lunar Rat 5 gram Gold Bar

PAMP is pleased to announce the latest edition of its popular Lunar Calendar Series for the Year of the Rat.

The Lunar Year or Chinese New Year marks the beginning of a Chinese calendar year and each cycle is named after an animal.

Do you know how this came about?
One of the ancient folk story tells that the Jade Emperor decreed that the years on the calendar would be named after each animal, in the order they reached him. To get there, the animals would have to cross a river. There were 13 animals came to the race.
The Cat and Rat were very bad at swimming, but they were both quite intelligent. They decided that the best and fastest way to cross the river was to hop on the back of the Ox. The Ox, being kind hearted and naive, agreed to carry them both across. As the Ox was about to reach the other side of the river, the Rat pushed the Cat into the water, and then jumped off the Ox and rushed to the Jade Emperor. Hence, the Rat was named as the first animal of the zodiac calendar. The Ox had to settle in second place.

In Chinese culture, the rat is symbolic of adaptability, industriousness, intelligence, charisma and prosperity. Thus, the Chinese anticipate a time of successful adaptability to change, opportunities in which charisma and charm will play a positive role, reasoned yet cautious decision making, and abundance.

The unique front-to-back design illusion, a signature of PAMP’s Lunar Calendar Series, features a reverse-side rendering of a charming rat, facing west – the cardinal direction associated with this animal. The element of metal is particular to the rat born in 2020, represented by an ancient Chinese coin bearing characters that translate to: “The year of the rat is the harvest year.” The obverse-side displays the rat as if viewed from behind, and the single inscription on the ancient coin bears the mark of the ancient Chinese Imperial Mint.

Rich in symbolism, this latest edition of the series is precision minted with a thoughtful mix of high and low relief, dynamic finishes, and exquisite detail.

As with every edition of the series, the Year of the Rat ingot is sealed within brilliant red CertiPAMP packaging, ensuring that it is both ready-made for gift-giving and an ideal purchase for bullion enthusiasts.
