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

2004 - 2010

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.

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.
