      Comments about 2014 Australia 5 oz Silver Lunar Horse (SII):

      This coin's diameter is not as large as the ATB Quarter 5 oz piece, but it is thicker, and oh, so beautiful. This coin has exceptional shine and a great design not to mention the low mintage. This coin is highly collectible, and APMEX's flash sale made it a steal of a deal. Purchased for almost half of issue price. Thank you APMEX for fair prices, great coins, and impeccable service.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Unbelievable speed and service. Ordered on Friday afternoon and by Mon. afternoon, it was in my mailbox. Thanks APMEX for exceptional customer service.

          I bought this coin to add a small amount of numismatic value to our stack. I love the horses artwork. This coin is beautiful and, surprisingly, one of my collection's premier favorites.

              Very nice, attractive coin. Larger diameter than most 5oz coins - more space for the artwork. Great details and surely a wise piece to hold onto.

                  this coin is one of the most beautiful in my collection!
                  If you on the fence let me assure you that you will not be disappointed
                  the diameter was smaller then expected, assumed t would be the same size as the ATB 5oz quarters but since ts thicker the diameter is smaller.
                  I own the 2oz one as well and do have to say i think the 2oz s a better value when you consider the price and the size of the design on its face. the 5oz is only 1cm larger in diameter. so if the 5oz is too expensive i highly recommend the 2oz

                  The perth mint makes the most beautiful silver cons on the market and the horse lunar II coins are one of their best. Canada is the only mint that comes close to the beauty and quality of the Perth mint but their coins tend to be quite a bit more expensive. These coins are only a tiny bit more expensive then a plain 5oz bar so its a no-brainier to decide between this and a regular bar

                              A beautiful Lunar Series sure to please; I am certain this will be one of the leading collectables of the series. Just added 2 more Horses to my stable, a 10oz and also a One Kilo weight, because I like this design so much.

                                  It is a Beautiful Design
                                  When you see it in person, it is even more impressive.
                                  I think it is a "home run" masterpiece that will play out as a valuable investment over time.
