2008 Canada $150 Gold Lunar Hologram - Year of the Rat

As is typical of this series, outer cardboard box may have some light wear.

>Charming innovative thinker!

It's no accident the Rat is the first sign in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Nobody knows exactly what transpired when Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to his side before his death, but the Rat obviously got there first. That is the Rat personality - crafty to a fault. The Rat is exceedingly talented at spotting an opportunity and taking advantage of it.

He excels in business and knows how to "work a room" to get the information he needs. To that end, he can be painfully inquisitive and intrusive, but does it in such an honest and straightforward way, everyone is caught off guard. The Rat is remarkably easy to get along with. He cares sincerely about others. Hardworking and thrifty, he doesn't part easily with his money unless you're a relative.

If so, the Rat is extremely generous and loyal. If you are not a relative and the Rat does present you with an expensive gift, you are very cherished indeed!
