Perth Mint's Australian Lunar Series II collection epitomizes the rich tradition of minting spectacular bullion coins by portraying animal themes from the Chinese Lunar calendar. The reverse design changes each year based on the Chinese lunar calendar, and the 2017 reverse celebrates the Year of the Rooster. The birth dates for people born in the Lunar Year of the Rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017. Those born in these years are said to be hardworking, loyal, honest and sociable.

Known for their quality and collectibility, the Perth Mint Lunar series is a cornerstone of many precious metals portfolios. The original Lunar bullion series, these coins (beginning with the Series I launch in 1996) have become some of the most widely collected around the globe, as demand originated in Asia but spread to Europe and America as investors became exposed to the design and quality. In addition to the annual design change, many investors love that the coins' select mintage limits create the potential for even greater investment return in the form of a numismatic premium appreciation. This series is so popular, the 1 oz Gold and Silver Lunars are now instant sell-outs every year!

The Perth Lunar Series 1 concluded in 2010, and in 2008 (overlapping three years) began the Lunar Series 2 that is now in production. These releases have been tremendously popular worldwide, with each year selling out quickly as investors and collectors claim the coins of all sizes. As each 1 oz Silver bullion coin in Series 2 has been limited to only 300,000 coins worldwide, the prolonged popularity is ensured by the high level of collectibility as well as the stellar designs from the reputable Perth Mint.

Been collecting the Australia lunar coins since the first series started. Premium is higher than some other coins but I trusted apmex to supply a great specimen coin for my collection. Preorder was a nice option. Sometimes the lunar coins can become hard to find and pricey if you wait to purchase them. Apmex came through again.

I purchased the 2017 Australia Lunar coin because I like Perth Mint coins and I like the Lunar Series. The other coins in the series hold their value and it was a nice addition to my collection. I like the look of this coin and I can't wait to get more of the series. The coin arrived in a capsule as described, and the coin is bigger than other 1 oz coins. The coin is in perfect condition with no marks or damage. APMEX delivered fast and secure. Purchase the Perth Mint Australia Lunar Series coins with confidence.
