The history of 1 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Goat coins
These 2015 Gold coins, featuring the Year of the Goat, are part of the hugely popular Lunar Series 1 and 2 from the Perth Mint. The first Gold bullion coin series began with the Year of the Mouse in 1996 and ended with the Year of the Pig in 2007. In addition to the Year of the Goat coin, both Lunar Series of 1 oz Gold coins also feature the years of the Mouse, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. The Gold Lunar Series 2, which began in 2008, will continue until 2019.
Why invest in 1 oz Gold Lunar Year of the Goat coins?
These 2015 Gold coins are a perfect addition to a lunar series collection, but their rarity makes them an interesting addition for any coin collection. These Gold coins, commemorating the Year of the Goat, with a full mintage of only 30,000, are rarer and more desirable bullion coins than other coins with larger runs. In addition, most of the 1 oz Gold coins from the Gold Lunar Series 2 have similar limited mintages. As a result, this Gold coin collection can be difficult to obtain and is likely to increase in numismatic value, adding to its collectibility.
