The Rat may be the smallest zodiac, but its clever and charming ways won it the first spot in the Chinese lunar calendar. There’s always something brewing in the Rat’s razor-sharp mind. These enterprising individuals are incredibly curious and quick to ferret out an opportunity. They can be rather forward, but their honest and candid ways put everyone at ease. Rat people are remarkably easy to get along with. They are bright, fun loving, and care deeply about the people in their lives. Rat people succeed at virtually everything they do, but business is where they truly shine. They can strategize and stretch finances like no other. If you receive an extravagant gift from a Rat, know that you are cherished and prized indeed!

Did you know…
- Legends abound how the tiny rat became the first sign in the Chinese zodiac when the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals. Many claim the Rat hitched a ride on the kind and helpful Ox, and jumped off at the last moment to get there first. While the Horse was arguably a faster option, some legends claim the high-spirited Horse refused to cooperate, or was too polite to race ahead of the others.
- Lucky symbols for Rat people include the numbers two and three, the colours blue, gold and green, as well as the lily and African violet.
- The Rat is happiest with the Dragon, Ox or Rabbit, and will achieve great things when teamed up with the Dog or Monkey. The Rat lacks patience when dealing with the Rooster and will never get along with the fiery Horse. It’s the polar opposite of the Rat’s water element.
Your coin is encapsulated and housed in a silver satin-like covered case with a custom red sleeve.
