Lunar Bullion Coin Sales Update

Topics [ Year of the Horse Australian Lunar Year of the Snake ]


The next update of the Australian Lunar sales and mintage figures is scheduled for early next year. At that time the pdf documents on the website will be revised to reflect the latest information.

We recently received a question about sales of 2013 Lunar Snake silver bullion coins, however, and I am happy to provide blog readers with interim details ahead of the official announcement.

Sales-to-date of the silver bullion Snakes are as follows:

1/2oz – 160,108

2oz – 55,933

5oz – 20,102

10oz – 28,136

1 kilo – 30,966

Except for the 1 kilo coin, no mintage limit applies to these releases, however production ends at the end of 2013 and, as I indicated above, the maximum mintage of each coin will be declared early in 2014. Latest sales-to-date of the 1 kilo coin will also be updated at this time.

A sell-out of the 1oz Lunar Snake gold and silver bullion coins was announced in this blog posted at the end of October 2012.

On another note, 2014 1oz Lunar Horse gold and silver bullion coins are rapidly approaching their respective maximum mintages of 30,000 and 300,000. Watch out for an announcement of their official sell-outs as early as next week!
