Temporary Suspension Of Silver Dragon Orders

Topics [ silver bullion coins Australian Lunar Year of the Dragon ]


With immediate effect we are temporarily suspending orders for 1/2oz, 2oz and 5oz 2012 Year of the Dragon silver bullion coins.

This decision has been taken in response to unprecedented levels of demand for these three sizes, which is stretching production capacity to the limit. A temporary suspension in order-taking is, therefore, required to enable us to re-stock these product lines and focus on fulfilling all existing orders as quickly as possible.

I emphasise that this move will enable our production to catch-up with orders and that it has nothing to do with the amount of silver available at The Perth Mint, of which there is ample.

Going forward, it is our intention to re-start production of 1/2oz silver bullion Dragons first.  I will post as soon as I can with an announcement that we are taking orders again to ensure that you have access to at least one small Lunar coin.

I’d like to apologise for any inconvenience that this temporary suspension may cause. This year we planned significantly larger inventories of the Australian Lunar series to be available at launch, but even we’ve been surprised at the level of interest in what must be the most popular coins so far this year!
