Perth Mint (Gold Lunar Series)

Perth Mint (Gold Lunar Series)

Australian Lunar Gold Coins Offer Historical Connections

Lunar coins come from a long tradition of Gold coins that commemorate the signs of the Chinese zodiac. The Australian Lunar Series 2 began in 2008 and will last until 2019. This follows the popular Lunar Series 1, which dates back to 1996.

No matter the year, the coin obverse remains the same throughout the series. It depicts Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The obverse also lists other specifications of the coin, varying from Series 1 to Series 2.

The design on the reverse of the Lunar Series changes, depending on the year and its correspondence with the Chinese zodiac. No matter the year and design, there are consistent elements on each release. For instance, the Chinese character for that animal is always present, along with the .9999 fine Gold content. The "P" marking on the right side of the coin represents the mintmark of The Perth Mint and reflects the backing of the Australian government.

With limited mintages, long-standing issues and historical appeal, Gold Lunars are popular year after year. The relatively low price of these Gold coins makes them smart investments and their role as an integral part of a series ensures their enduring collectibility.
