10 oz. Australian Lunar
Silver Bullion Coin
Series I & II

1999 - 2019


In 1999, three years after the successful release of the Gold Lunar Bullion Coin, the Perth Mint introduced the Australian Lunar Silver Bullion Coin.

The Australian lunar series of bullion coins often have higher premiums added to their sale price due to the polished look of the silver lunar bullion coins, and the coin's yearly limited mintage.

The Chinese Calendar




In 2637 B.C., a Chinese Emperor named Huangdi invented the Chinese Calendar.

The Chinese calendar is based on a twelve-year cycle of astronomical observations of the sun and the phases of the moon.

Each year in that twelve-year cycle has an animal sign.

The Chinese believe each animal has a profound influence on those born under the year of its rule.
