Struck by the historic Perth Mint from 99.99% pure Silver, each coin's Australian legal tender status guarantees its weight and purity.

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.

Amazing Silver Rooster

By  Khan

from Colorado

5.0

A large silver bullion, having a wider diameter than other 1oz sized coins. Another impressive release from Perth Mint's lunar series ll. Really good contrast bw the light of the shining rooster and the darkness of his brood. As with other coins in the series, the Chinese symbol for the animal associated with the year in the lunar calendar ("Rooster") is prominantly displayed on the reverse. I also like the more traditional, classy version of Lizzy on the obverse. She is the Queen, let her rock her crown!

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
