Dragons set to fire more investor interest in bullion

Topics [ silver bullion coins gold bullion coins ]

The Perth Mint has enhanced its range of bullion coins for investors with a significantly new type of offering.

Struck in the shape of our popular minted bars, the new rectangle-shaped Dragon bullion coins are issued as Australian legal tender.

Made from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, these releases tap into surging interest in Asian-style design themes exemplified by the Mint’s highly successful Australian Lunar coin program.

With elements carefully chosen to convey the significance of Chinese lore and legend, the coins’ design visualises an Oriental dragon, a mythical creature revered for its benevolence. Its serpentine figure is chasing a flaming pearl, believed to have the mystical power to grant people their wishes.

Their obverse portrays the 2018 year-date and the Queen’s effigy.

Investors can acquire silver versions individually in a plastic pouch and in tubes of 20 coins. For large volume buyers, a monster box is also available containing 10 tubes (200 coins).

The gold release is sold individually in capsules.

Each coin is struck with meticulous attention to detail for which The Perth Mint is internationally renowned. Adding to their exclusivity, rectangular Dragon bullion coins are subject to strict annual mintage restrictions.

In 2018, we will release no more than 500,000 silver coins and up to 25,000 gold coins.

Registered bullion clients are invited to place orders at www.perthmintbullion.com.

Other buyers should visit The Perth Mint’s Bullion Trading Desk at 310 Hay Street in East Perth, or contact us by telephone on 1300 201 112 (Australia) / +61 8 9421 7218 (International).

Alternatively, these new Dragon coins can be purchased from our network of authorised distributors.
