1/4 oz. Australian Lunar Gold Bullion Coin
Series I, II, and III


1996 - Present



The Perth Mint's Series I, Australian Lunar Gold bullion coins started with the Year of the Mouse, in 1996, and ended in 2007 with the Year of the Pig.

The Series II Lunar gold bullion coins, which began in 2008 and ended in 2019, have been redesigned for the Series III edition, featuring a revised design on both sides.

The Australian Lunar Gold Bullion Coin Series features raised and polished finishes, which often result in higher premiums for their sale.
