Sell out of Year of the Pig 1oz gold and silver bullion coins good news for Australian Lunar Series III

The 1oz gold and silver denominations from the 12-year Australian Lunar Bullion Coin Series II are fully sold out.

The news follows The Perth Mint’s announcement today that all 30,000 1oz gold coins and 300,000 1oz silver coins marking the 2019 Year of the Pig have been dispatched to wholesale and retail customers worldwide.


Previous Mouse, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster and Dog coin releases also sold their full mintages.

The achievement represents a total of 3.6 million ounces of pure silver and 360,000oz of pure gold acquired by investors and collectors in the form of 1oz Australian Lunar bullion coins since the initial annual issue in 2008.

The series lays claim to be part of the first major coin program to celebrate the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. Mimicked many times, it retains its reputation as the highest quality Lunar coin offering in the world.

Group Manager – Minted Products Neil Vance said that the continuing popularity of the program was enormously encouraging for the prospects of Series III, due to be unveiled later this year.

“The Australian Lunar program is a superb advertisement for the quality of Australian precious metals and our minting skills which are among the very best globally,” he said.

“We aim to continue the tradition for another 12 years with Series III and think our clients will relish the new artistic concept we’re unveiling on the 2020 Year of the Mouse line up of gold and silver bullion coins.”
