This limited-edition rat gold bar from Argor Heraeus is released to celebrate the Year of the Rat. According to Chinese mythology, the order of the animals in the ancient zodiac calendar was decided with a great race across a river. The rat is one of 12 animals that participated in the Great Race and it leapt onto the riverbank first by tricking his neighbour, the cat, before hitching a ride on the back of the ox. The rat won the race finally and The Year of the Rat is the first on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The Rat is considered a symbol of wisdom, wealth, and prosperity; people born under this sign have in fact no difficulties in managing their financial activities and turn unfortunate events into rather fruitful ones.
