Perth Mint Silver Kangaroo Mini Monster Box Winner Announced
Over the years, APMEX has partnered with The Perth Mint to bring many exciting sweepstakes to our customers. From February 20 through March 5, 2017, APMEX received more than 8,500 entries into the 2017 Perth Mint Silver Kangaroo Sweepstakes, which awarded one winner a Mini Monster Box of 2017 Silver Kangaroos. We were very excited to again work with The Perth Mint and give away 250 oz of .9999 fine Silver. In March we announced Stephen G. from Colorado as our winner!
“Stephen is a loyal customer of APMEX who loves the long-term outlook of buying Precious Metals,” Account Services Specialist Paul Stevens said. “As his account manager, I am happy he won such a great contest that gives our customers the opportunity to build on their investment portfolio.”
In 2016, The Perth Mint introduced their first Silver Kangaroo bullion coin. The kangaroo is one of the most instantly recognizable wildlife symbols of Australia and the world's largest marsupial. The reverse shows an image of the Australian kangaroo, along with the monetary value, metal purity, weight and year minted. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Following this most recent sweepstakes, The Perth Mint released a new bullion series, the Silver Swan, which launched April 3 and sold out worldwide in just under two days. The 2017 1 oz Silver Swan had a limited mintage of just 25,000 coins which contributed to the coins selling out so quickly.
More recently, The Perth Mint launched the PCGS-graded 2017 Silver Swan. A small selection of these coins were graded MS-69 and MS-70 by PCGS with the First Strike designation. The 2017 graded Silver Swans are now available at www.APMEX.com.
We are pleased to work with The Perth Mint year after year and look forward to working together in the future! Thank you to all those who entered into the 2017 Silver Kangaroo Mini Monster Box Sweepstakes and congratulations to Stephen G.! Continue following APMEX for upcoming sweepstakes opportunities.
