Mouse leads the pack in new Australian Lunar Bullion Series III

The Perth Mint is proud to launch its third Australian Lunar Bullion Coin Series with the release of superbly crafted precious metal coins honouring the first animal in the Chinese zodiac, the mouse. Available from today, this prestigious series incorporates a new initiative with the release of the first ever platinum lunar coin.

Dating back to 1995, the Australian Lunar Bullion Coin Series was 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.

This is reflected in the success of the Australian Lunar Bullion Series II, which sold out each of its 1oz gold and silver denominations. Available each year in limited mintages, this achievement represented a total of 3.6 million ounces of pure silver and 360,000oz of pure gold acquired by investors between 2008 and 2019.

With the program’s enduring popularity this feat is expected to be repeated with the release of 2020 Year of the Mouse 1oz gold, silver and now, for the first time, platinum lunar bullion coins.

The 2020-dated coins feature naturalistic portrayals of mice foraging among stalks of wheat on the gold and platinum coins, and on husks of corn on the silver coins. Both charming designs incorporate the Chinese character for ‘mouse’ in a contemporary style.

Also available in several alternative weights, the Australian Lunar Bullion Coin Series III delivers an expanding range of options for the modern investor while upholding its reputation for unsurpassed quality, outstanding value and complete assurance.

Buyers of 2020 Year of the Mouse 1oz bullion coins are urged to act quickly to secure the limited releases of 30,000 gold, 300,000 silver and just 5,000 platinum.
