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

1999 - Present





full moon

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

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

The proof-like surfaces on the bullion coins can cause some bullion investors to mistake the coins for collectors proof coins.

Since the gold and silver lunar bullion coins were released, they have become one of the most popular, modern bullion coins.

Design of the
1 oz. Australian Lunar Silver
Series I & II - Bullion Coin





Series I : Obverse

The obverse of the silver bullion coin displays the profile of her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.

His initial's, "IRB" are inscribed directly below the Queen's neck.
































The words "ELIZABETH II", "AUSTRALIA" and "1 DOLLAR" are displayed inside the outer perimeter of the silver bullion coin.

The 1 oz. silver bullion coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, this means the coin is guaranteed by the Government of Australia.

Series I : Reverse

The reverse of the lunar silver bullion coin shows an image of the animal associated with each Chinese Lunar Calendar year.

Inside the design, on one side of the lunar animal is the 'Year of Issue' and on the other side is the Chinese Symbol that represents it.

This side also displays the weight "1 OZ" and purity of the coin "999 SILVER".

The Mint Mark of "P" representing The Perth Mint, is not inscribed on the Series I Silver Lunar bullion coins, but it is inscribed on the Series II coins.

_______

Note: The Lunar Series I, Year of the Rabbit bullion coin, issued in 1999, displayed a special ‘P100’ mint mark. It represents The Perth Mint's "100th Anniversary." 1999 was the only year a Series I silver lunar coin had a Mint Mark.

The coin's 'Year of Issue,' and the face value of "1 DOLLAR" is also displayed along the bottom half of the silver coin.

Series II : Reverse

The reverse side of the series II, Australian Lunar Silver bullion coin has a universal design for each different sized coin, for a specific year.

The reverse of the 2019's Australian Lunar Silver Bullion coin displays a mother pig surrounded by her piglets, in the grass, with foliage above them.

Inscribed inside the design of the Silver Lunar Pig bullion coin is the Chinese symbol that represents the calendar animal.

Across the bottom of the 2018 lunar silver coin are the words "Year of the Dog"

The "P" on the reverse side is the Mint Mark for The Perth Mint.

Both the Series I & II silver bullion coins have Reeded Edges.

Lastly, on the first leaf of the tree branch, above the pigs, are the initials of 'AH' for Aleysha Howarthon, the designer of the 2019 Silver bullion coin's reverse side.

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.
