Zodiac Calendar Sign
The Ox is the second of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Ox was about to be the first to arrive, but Rat tricked Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox. Thus, Ox became the second animal.
The Ox is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Chǒu (丑) and the hours 1–3 in the morning. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Ox is Yang.
The Mighty Silver Ox is joined by two additional matched lunar products – a traditional 1/2 gram gold version and a five-gram silver note with brilliant surface finishing.
