1/2 kilo. Australian Lunar
Silver Bullion Coin
Series I & II





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

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

Free Bullion Investment Guide
Thanks You for Visiting!





My name is Steven Warrenfeltz, and I created the this guide for those who are looking for honest information about investing in precious metals bullion.

The other side of this guide is my way of fulfilling a promise to a childhood friend who died of cancer.

That promise was to do whatever I could to support those who are Battling Cancer (researchers/patients), and in doing so, try to help rid the world of this horrible disease.

The guide is my effort to make a bigger impact against the disease by combining what I love, 'investing,' while fulfilling a promise.


The Free Bullion Investment Guide has three missions:

  • The 1st mission is to be an Honest place on the web that provides you with the Best Bullion Market Reference Material.

Brief History of the
Chinese Calendar




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

The calendar is 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.
