Here’s a picture published by The West Australian of The Perth Mint’s Neil Vance with two spectacular Year of the Dragon bullion coins. Made from 10kg of 99.99% pure gold and 10kg 99.9% pure silver, the huge coins are currently valued at more than $514,000 and $12,500 respectively. (Bullion coins are aimed at investors and prices vary in accordance with spot markets). Because they’re so tricky to make, Neil said that only a handful will be struck.

How we made the 10kg Dragon coins

  1. Hello,
    is it possible still to buy “10 kg silver coins”, lunar II, mouse (2008) and ox (2009) directly by Perth Mint ?
    When it is possible, what is the price?
    And, when it isn’t possible, where can I get these coins?

    With friendly regards
