Perth Mint releases Lunar Rooster with Lion Privy Mark

Topics [ silver bullion coins Australian Lunar Year of the Rooster ]

The Perth Mint is delighted to announce the availability of the Australian Lunar 2017 1oz Silver Bullion Coin with Lion Privy Mark.

Historically, a privy mark is a small symbol in the design of a coin which is added for the purpose of identifying the mint that struck it. The Perth Mint adapted the concept in the 1990s when it began adding miniature commemorative symbols to a range of limited mintage releases for added numismatic interest.

Australian coins featuring a Lion privy mark are popular in Germany, one of the Mint’s key overseas markets, where the animal is a prominent heraldic symbol associated with ancient ruling families from Bavaria. As well as being represented in the state’s coat of arms, lion statues symbolising strength and glory can be seen throughout Bavaria, notably in the capital city of Munich.

Distributed in Germany via Bayerische Landesbank (BayernLB), this Privy Mark Edition from the Australian Lunar Coin Series is struck from 99.99% pure silver. Issued as Australian legal tender, it has a limited mintage of just 30,000.

To acquire this silver investment opportunity in Australia, buyers can visit The Perth Mint Bullion Room at 310 Hay Street in East Perth, call our Bullion Line on 1300 201 112, or login to perthmintbullion.com.

The coin is also available from our authorised distributors Ainslie Bullion in Australia, LPM in Asia, and Gainesville Coins in the US.
