The newest edition of the Australian Lunar series silver collection is here, and the coins are unique as well as beautiful. This year they are celebrating ‘the rooster’, the ninth animal of the Chinese zodiac in the 12-year cycle.
These coins are 99.99% pure silver and are struck by The Perth Mint as a proof of its quality. The design of the coin illustrates a coloured rooster and a hen with three chicks amongst flowers and bamboo foliage. The reverse side of the coin depicts the statue of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II along with the date and the monetary denomination of the coin. Each and every coin is packed in an elegant red and black case with themed shipper which comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
However, only 9,000 coins of this type will be produced in the year 2017. These kind of silver coins are great for collection as well as for investing.
