Tens of thousands of visitors hit The Perth Mint website within hours of April’s new coin releases earlier this week.

There’s been strong interest in the 1kg Silver Proof Koala, Black Rhinoceros 1oz Silver Proof Coin and Diamond Jubilee Two-Coin Silver Proof Set.

However, by far and away the most heavily sought-after new product is the Year of the Dragon 1oz Silver Ten-Coin Set.

This amazing Dragon release comprises a standard 1oz bullion coin and nine variants in a rainbow of colours.

Sets available for sale on the internet are already extremely low. Customers wishing to order direct from the Mint’s website are urged to do as soon as possible.

  1. Hi Blog Team,

    Can you please tell me when “The Australian Lunar Coloured Coins – Series Two” pdf document will be updated and when will the coloured lunars be “declared”? (Page 2 of 7)

    Kind regards

    • Hi Billy Black Smith

      Very nice to hear from you again.

      The sales-to-date figures for Coloured Lunar Horse coins will be published early next year (unless sold out earlier).

      Our policy towards numismatic issues, including the Coloured Lunars, is that their mintage is ‘declared’ at the end of the third year of manufacture (unless sold out earlier). For example, a coin dated 2012 will have its declared mintage posted on 31 December 2014.

      Hope this answers your question,

      Kind regards

      • Thank you Blog team, you are always very helpful, I look forward to the mintage updates and the continuation of Perth’s excellent artist, design teams and all the folk at Perth who continue to bring us marvellous coins for collectors.

        All the best.

          • Final comment Blog Team.

            As you are aware, the pdf documents for both bullion and numismatic products has columns for “Sales to Date” and “Declared”.

            When reading Perth’s glossary of terms and in particular The Mintage Policy there is reference to what “Declared” means but there is no reference to “Sales to Date”.

            Obviously you would think that most people would understand what “Sales To Date” means after-all it is self explaining, however, it seems that the secondary market (ebay) and indeed many stackers on precious metal forums get confused between “Declared” and Sales To Date” or try to use the “Sales To Date” figure to suggest that a particular coin is rare.

            Obviously, using a figure from the Sales to Date” column in the pdf as the fimal mintage figure before a product is Declared is ridiculous and somewhat frustrating when trying to explain to new people or indeed old what figure is correct.

            If possible could you please review your Mintage policy page to perhaps include what “Sales to Date” means (Terminology).

            Kind regards
