1oz gold, silver and platinum coins from Australian Lunar III sell out at The Perth Mint

Topics [ platinum bullion coin silver bullion coins gold bullion coins ]

The Australian Lunar Bullion Coin Series III has been enthusiastically received by investors with news that all 30,000 1oz gold coins, 300,000 1oz silver coins and 5,000 1oz platinum coins marking the 2020 Year of the Mouse have sold out.

These popular Australian Lunar releases lay claim to be part of the first major coin program in the world to celebrate the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. Introduced in 1996, they’ve been mimicked many times, but retain their reputation as the highest quality Lunar coins in the world.

“Sales of Series III coins celebrating the Year of Mouse are very encouraging to date,” Group Manager – Minted Products Neil Vance said. “The popular 1oz gold and silver denominations have now sold out for 13 consecutive years, and we’re also delighted by the reaction to our first ever platinum Lunar bullion coin.”

He added: “We’re already looking forward to offering our clients 11 more fresh animal designs from Series III to continue the Australian Lunar’s huge international success.”

Buyers keen to add Lunar Mouse coins made from 99.99% pure gold and 99.99% pure silver to their bullion stacks can still invest in variety of other denominations.

A choice of 1/20oz, 1/10oz, 1/4oz, 1/2oz, 2oz and 10oz gold coins and 1/2oz, 2oz, 5oz and 1 kilo silver coins will remain available until the launch of 2021 Year of the Ox releases next September.
