Perth Mint’s Australian Lunar Series III collection continues the rich tradition of minting spectacular bullion coins by portraying animal themes from the Chinese lunar calendar. The reverse design changes each year based on the Chinese lunar calendar, and the 2024 reverse celebrates the Year of the Dragon. Those born under the sign of the Chinese lunar dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976 and every 12th preceding year are said to be ambitious, successful and charismatic.
The Perth Mint Lunar Series
Known for their quality and collectability, The Perth Mint Lunar Series is a cornerstone of many precious metals portfolios. The original lunar bullion series, these coins (beginning with the Series I launch in 1996) have become some of the most widely collected around the globe, as demand originated in Asia but spread to Europe and America as investors became exposed to the design and quality. In addition to the annual design change, many investors love that the coins’ select mintage limits create the potential for even greater investment return in the form of a numismatic premium appreciation. This series is so popular, the 1 oz Gold and Silver Lunars are now instant sell-outs every year!
The Perth Lunar Series I concluded in 2010, and Series II concluded in 2019. These releases have been tremendously popular worldwide, with each year selling out quickly as investors and collectors claim the coins of all sizes. As each 1 oz silver bullion coin in Series III has been limited to 300,000 coins worldwide, the prolonged popularity is ensured by the high level of collectability as well as the stellar designs from the reputable Perth Mint.
