1/2 oz. Australian Lunar Gold
Bullion Coin
Series I, II, and III


2004 - Present



In 2004, the Perth Mint added another gold bullion coin to their popular Lunar Gold bullion coin series, the 1/2 oz. gold bullion coin.

The Australian Lunar Gold and Silver bullion coins are some of the most sought after bullion coins minted in the world.

Each series of bullion coins have raised images with proof-like finishes, which often yields a higher premium for the lunar gold coins.
