The number eight is considered lucky in Chinese and Asian cultures.
Hence the mintage of this beautifully presented coin show special celebrating The Perth Mint’s recent participation at the 2011 Beijing International Coin Exposition.
Featuring 1/2oz silver bullion coins from the 2012 Australian Koala and 2012 Australian Lunar – Year of the Dragon coin series, just 2,888 two-coin sets have been released.
While most were purchased by collectors in China, we’re pleased to announce that as of today 10 per cent of the mintage is being offered on The Perth Mint website.
With the lucky number eight dominating the mintage, there’s a feeling that this rare offering is not going to be available for much longer!
