Perth Mint is regarded as one of the world's premier manufacturers of Gold, Silver and other Precious Metals products. As an industry leader, Perth Mint's new releases are always highly anticipated and tend to sell out quickly. Among the most popular series of coins produced by Perth Mint are the Gold and Silver Australia Lunar Series which center around the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. In correspondence with the Chinese lunar cycle, Perth's Australia Lunar Series last for 12 years and each new release in the series centers around that year's respective lunar animal. The animals of the Chinese zodiac in chronological order are as follows: the mouse, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the goat, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and the pig.
Continuing the Tradition
Following the massive success of the Australia Lunar Series I and II, Perth Mint is pleased to announce the release of the Australia Lunar Series III. The third installment of this illustrious series from Perth Mint will once again cover the 12 years and animals of the Chinese zodiac calendar over a 12-year period. The Australia Lunar Series III will commence with the 2020 Year of the Mouse coins and culminate with the 2031 Year of the Pig coins. Like Series I and II, Series III will include Gold and Silver coins in multiple sizes and finishes representing each of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac.
