1/2 oz. Australian Lunar Gold Bullion Coin
Series I & II

2004 - Present







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

The Series I & II gold and silver bullion coins are some of the most highly sought after coins minted today.

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

The Chinese Calendar,
a Brief History 




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

The Lunar Calendar is steeped in tradition, based on the appearance of the new moon, the calendar associates a different animal with each year in the 12 year cycle.

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