The 2012 Australian Lunar gold and silver bullion coins celebrate the Year of the Dragon.

Anticipation surrounding these Lunar Dragon coins has been at fever-pitch for some months. As a result of the expected popularity of some coins, the following restrictions apply to purchases made via www.perthmintbullion.com or in person at the Bullion Desk in The Perth Mint Shop.

•1oz Lunar Dragon gold bullion coin (max. mintage 30,000) – No more than five coins per customer.

•1oz Lunar Dragon silver bullion coin (max. mintage 300,000) – No more than 20 coins per customer.

No restrictions apply to 1kg, 10oz, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz or 1/20oz gold bullion Lunar Dragon coins; or 1kg, 10oz, 5oz, 2oz or 1/2oz silver bullion Lunar Dragon coins.

The 2012 Australian Kookaburra silver bullion coins portray a kookaburra sitting on a tree branch amid eucalypt leaves.

Once again, the 1oz Kookaburra silver bullion coin is expected to be highly sought after.  In 2011, the full 500,000 mintage sold out at The Perth Mint.  

2012 Australian Kookaburra silver bullion coins are also issued in 1kg and 10oz weights.

Brochures containing full details of the 2012 Lunar and Kookaburra series, as well as the forthcoming 2012 Australian Kangaroo gold bullion coin series and 2012 Australian Koala silver bullion coin series are now available for download.
