Australian Lunar proves its investment pedigree in Year of the Dog

Now in its penultimate year, the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Bullion Coin Series II celebrates the 11th animal of the Chinese lunar calendar – the dog.

Another sought after design in the 12 year Lunar sequence, the dog is represented with portrayals of two popular breeds – the German shepherd and the labrador retriever.

Struck from 99.99% pure gold and 99.99% pure silver with the Mint’s superior bullion finish, the coins are issued as Australian legal tender, making them ideal for investors seeking the portfolio protection power of precious metals.

Having sold out in each previous year of the Series, the 1oz gold release (restricted to 30,000 coins) and the 1oz silver release (restricted to 300,000), are expected to attract significant interest.

Also available as 1 kilo, 2oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz and 1/20oz gold coins and 10 kilo, 1 kilo, 10oz, 5oz*, 2oz and 1/2oz silver coins, the 2018 Australian Lunar series combines an internationally acclaimed reputation with quality, convenience and cost-effectiveness.

More information.

* availability of 5oz Year of the Dog silver bullion coin will available approximately two weeks after the official release date of 11th September.
