Perth Mint Scotches Horse Coin Rumour

Topics [ Year of the Horse silver bullion coins ]


A rumour that the popular Australian Lunar Silver Bullion Series is changing from round to square-shaped coins could not be further from the truth.

The idea that the Mint would change horses (as it were) half-way through the current series is laughable.

The vibe surrounding the 2014 Year of the Horse bullion “round” coin program is encouraging with strong interest from international distributors and plenty of discussion from the silver community on the web. Much consideration has gone into the designs for both the gold and silver series and I’m sure the vast majority of investors and collectors will be delighted with the outcomes.  


What will it look like?

Having recently seen a sample, I think the silver horse is one of the most beautiful Lunar designs we’ve ever done.



The Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Bullion Coin Program will be officially launched at the beginning of September.

While gossip about the traditional Australian Lunar coin going square is nonsense, I can exclusively reveal that we are developing a completely separate coloured series of square-shaped horse coins for distribution in China. Should it go ahead, a small allocation of these coins would also be made available in Australia.
