Perth Mint (Gold Lunar Series)
Australian Gold Lunar Series - Produced by the Perth Mint, the Australian Gold Lunar Series began in 1996 with the Year of the Mouse coins and ended in 2007 with the Year of the Pig coins. Following the popularity, Series 2 began in 2008 and will end in 2019. Struck from .9999 fine Gold, Australian Lunar Series Gold coins are a great way to acquire and invest in Precious Metals. Not only are the Gold coins commemorative items that appeal to collectors worldwide, but they are also legal tender in Australia.
These Australian Gold Lunar coins celebrate the Chinese lunar calendar. Inspired by the traditions of the ancient Chinese calendar, the coins feature the 12 animals central to the calendar's stories. According to the lunar calendar, each of these 12 animals has a profound influence over those born under its year of "rule."
