I am pleased to announce we’ve started the process of declaring the mintage figures for numismatic coins issued since 1986.
As of today, production is officially closed-off for all 1986 to 2002-dated numismatic coins that have not sold their maximum mintage.
The declared mintage information will shortly be confirmed in the relevant tables of numismatic mintages on our collectables website.
This action provides 100% certainty that no more of these coins will be released by the Mint, thereby preserving their current rarity forever.
Designed for collectors, Perth Mint numismatic coins feature proof and specimen quality finishes (see Mintage Policy – Glossary of Terms for more information).
They come in presentation packaging accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, unlike our bullion quality coins which are mass produced for investors seeking exposure to the price of gold and silver.
Looking ahead, we will declare mintages for 2003 to 2011-dated numismatic coins that are not sold out following our annual review of year-dates in early 2013.
Shortly thereafter, these mintage declarations will be formally announced and confirmed in the relevant tables of numismatic mintages.
