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.
