Silver Koalas Get a Special Addition for the Lunar Year of the Pig
You don't want to miss this new limited-mintage release that combines a favorite Silver bullion series with one of the most popular subjects of mints around the world.
The Perth Mint's Silver Koala Series began in 2007. Though the design changes annually, it always focuses on the iconic marsupial from Australia. In 2018 the purity was increased to .9999 fine Silver and a series featuring Chinese Lunar Calendar privy marks was first introduced in 2017.
For 2019, to celebrate the Year of the Pig, just 15,000 of these 1 oz Silver coins will be released from The Perth Mint with all available exclusively at APMEX.
As the final animal of the 12-year cycle in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the pig is known to be diplomatic and sensitive. As with each sign of the Chinese zodiac, people born under the Year of the Pig are said to display traits associated with the animal, including honesty, loyalty, sincerity and a calm temperament.
With both raw and MintDirect® Premier options available, there is something for everyone at APMEX. Shop these limited-mintage Silver Koalas today while you can.
