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

2004 - Present





In 2004, The Perth Mint added two silver bullion coins to the Lunar Series, the coins were the $15 Dollars (1/2kg.) and the $8.00 Dollar (5 oz.) bullion coins.

The 1/2 kilogram silver bullion coin was discontinued in 2011, however the Perth Mint still produces the 5 oz. Silver Lunar Bullion Coin.

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

Since the silver lunar coin's release, the Series I and more recently the Series II Lunar bullion coins have become one of the most popular modern silver investment coins.

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.
